Stern & Wary Look

Snatch!
Snatching something from a pocket!
A lollipop in his right palm.
Dad guffaws
Toddler whimpers with hands on air
Dad returns lollipop
Toddler swiftly drop it
Into his pocket.

Sticking in his right palm
Into his pocket
Stern look
Wary look
To guard
His precious lollipop
As he holds his dad’s big palm with his left palm.

Sticking in his right palm
Into his pocket
Stern look
Wary look
Guarding his precious lollipop
Throughout our journey home
Throughout the journey paths
As we walk home.

In the mall, my husband bought our son two lollipops after our dinner. My toddler gave one lollipop to me then he kept the last one to himself. His dad asked him for his portion. My son asked back the lollipop from me. But his dad didn’t want and chose to pick his portion. He made fun of our son causing him to whimper wanting his lollipop back. The second circumstance occurred until we reached home.

Hungry Eyes At Goldfish vs Donut

Behind the aquarium
A pair of hungry eyes are looking
Looking at the swimming goldfish
Goldfish is fearful of the glowing eyes
The glowing eyes of a cat.
Goldfish is fearful of the saliva
The saliva from the cat’s mouth.

Waits at a box of donuts
Donut in pink to be cut
Cut in half for his
For his reward to finish lunch
To finish lunch quickly.
Waits a a box of donuts
Meowing with drooping saliva.

He reminds me
He looks like
A cat looking at the goldfish
Goldfish in the aquarium.

My son was very happy and claimed the promise to give him donut if he finished his lunch. Indeed, he quickly ate his lunch and sat on the chair to see his donut. The way he looked at the donuts reminded me of a cat looking at the goldfish. Then he meowed.

Why? Why? Why?

Why?
Why?
Why?
Full of why?

Why?
Why?
Why?
Why again?

Why
Are you
Always
Full of
Why?

Why?
Why?
Why?
Why again?
Speechless
Oh, my ears.
Scratching my head
Cracking my head
Cracking my brain
Oh, my brain.

My toddler has been asking lots of why since four months ago. Now, his ‘why’ questions are increasing in frequency until I’m rendered speechless and cracking my head. My ears do feel tired, but I try my best to answer it repeatedly.
