Flash fiction 55. In my Yard.


I come home to find
A "push me- pull you-"

Do it behind my back !?
Don't you dare.
Be direct and stand square.
Even if you don't stay long.
You can whisper I don't care.
I can pinch, grab an ear-
yank you, shake you
'til sense rolls down;
clear your head and try again.

don't rattle too hard or sense may be shaken out for good.

Child-wild urge piece. Effective work.

I enjoyed this poem, but was uncertain of the context surrounding it. You were right about Spring break and kids -- not being a "break" in the usual sense. Basically, it was a break from routine and a week of spontaneous fun..."Just go with it, Mom!" Pretty much was the theme.

Well, I prefer a direct confrontation myself, but I suppose not everyone does.

If only a good pinch and shake could fix things. And there they are again, those terrible, useless words, "if only."

Nice one.
