Life through children's eyes
                                 - for my little brother

I want to understand life
And its jumbled abstractions
I want to be a page in your book
Of superheroes
I want to be a four – leafed clover
And be lost and found again
I want to be the cane
Leading the way for someone
Who returned from war
I want to remember this sketch
Of the sea, and your hand
Holding the brush, finishing it
I want to be a jellyfish
Sand, shore, toes –
For the first time
