New Women’s Chiffon Tops. They’re just so chiffon-y.

"can i come out and play?"

she whispers to me
“can i come out and play?”
i try to control her
telling her it’s grown-up time
but she refuses to listen
my insides tickle
my heart races
she appears
16 years old
my shoes come off
i wiggle my toes
run outside
dance on my lawn
sing “lay lady lay”
Dylan’s her favorite
i know my neighbors
are watching
thinking “she’s crazy”
they don’t realize
my inner child
refuses to listen to me
and when she decides
it’s time to play
i have no choice
but to run, jump
and breathe in new found life
trying not to exhale
i don’t want her to leave
wanting to continue
to have that feeling
of inexplicable joy
delectable understanding
of what i really want
time stands still
i need time to stand still
my inner child controls me
i love her

“can i come out and play?”

"can i come out and play?"
