Toddler Takes Over

Look at me –
all authority and control –
productivity overload

until emotion,
toddles in,
waves her curls

feed her sugar –
a bribe to settle her down –
she’s having no part of it

topples organization,
sabotages rationality –
child’s mind taking over.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
