messy.

Standard

once the rain came

and the temperature rose by 50 degrees

and the snow and ice turned

to slush, and mud, and dirty water

and the discovery of this

brought such a level of joy and celebration

to the sandbox

that it was immeasurable. 

“childhood is messy and beautiful.”

sometimes I think that there’s a fine line between impressionistic and messy. – lady gaga

while b and j

were in my care today

it was real hot outside

so we walked up to the ice cream store

dragging long sticks along the ground

jumping down the sidewalk

 when i got a little lost

b said,

“maybe you’re taking the LONG shortcut”

yes, that’s it exactly

and

last thing i remember their dad saying

before he left was

“make sure they don’t get messy. we’re heading to a party as soon as i get home.”

well it kind of went bad in that department real fast

 we took the short shortcut home

tossed acorns pinecones pebbles

onto the street

 washed hands face arms legs shoes clothes phone and glasses

so much sweaty sticky fun.
