A long time ago…

Posted: February 16, 2021

Beneath my grandmother’s

dining table

I was captain

of my own spacecraft

Or I was steering

the entire house 

like some ancient galleon

through rough seas

to safety

I sat between the crossbeams

legs outstretched

and imagined as many worlds

as my young mind could imagine

All those adventures

are lost to childhood

But not lost

is the dreadful day

I climbed under the table

and could no longer fit

in the seat 

of my time machine
