the last holdouts at the grandies’ slumber party at peaches’ (my) cottage.
cousins, cartoons, baby golf, talking dogs, books,
made-up group stories, pizza, mac ‘n cheese, apple juice, suckers,
stuffed animals, laughing, whispers,
sleeping bags, pillows, pj’s, flashlights,
and not much sleep.
“no one looks back on their life and remembers the nights they got plenty of sleep.”
sleepover party with the grandies
all tangled up and diagonal
one falls out
gets scooped back up
put in the middle
folded into the mix
we are off!
when I’m sleeping i do a lot of living.
