You Are 2 Today

The Pope quit his job
Government went in sequestration

You have cake and
you’re eating it too

The snow will melt soon
trees in the backyard will pop
one at a time, then
allofthesudden allatonce

we’ll watch you attach objects
to your subjects and verbs
your changes will be notably un-notable
the ground will breathe itself awake
the sky will open up

we’ll clean the mint chocolate chip
from you cheek
