Possibilities

You asked me
to bring
two cardboard boxes home from work
to make a castle
& that’s exactly what you did,
stacked them one
on top of the other, mama can you
cut doors & windows?
perfect
you continued
stoically
even when mama got a little bitchy
about cutting skinny strips
from cardboard
(it’s not easy you know)
I know
thank you
attaching strips to flat pieces
until
look here’s my castle
with beds & thrones & windows
a balcony with railings, impressive
but just as you imagined
there it is
exactly
right,
you
are exactly right (good mama)
as mama never could have imagined
right here
you
you

Linking this up with Kenia’s prompt to the Real Toads, very late.
