june 27

spending the day with my son
walking to the hardware store
what’s this?
what’s this?
up and down the aisles
are you ready to go?
no, what’s this?

overcast
heavy clouds open
it rains
he splashes in puddles
squats, puts his finger in a small puddle
tastes the water
smiles
he laughs when the drops hit him

alternates between walking
and me carrying him

he leans into me on the couch
my head rests against him
holding him close
listening
