POEM: About your day

A poem by Colleen Higgs

BY COLLEEN HIGGS

At two, with your nanny
you play in the park with your friends
Trent and Dylan

You say their names as one name, you repeat
TrentandDylan
As if saying their names will reveal to me what you want me to know
but don’t yet have words for
TrentandDylan

You tell me
what the park was like, the sky, how windy it was
how many times you climbed and slid
about the swings and the feeling of flying, flying
just by repeating their names,
TrentandDylan, you tell me
about your day
