Kid Stuff

I find it quite peculiar
the way you blow kisses in my hair
with such adolescent poise,
how they attach themselves, like dewdrops
to each strand
in a rash attempt to grow a notion 
from mere breath and spittle

and I, like a dandelion
go poof and tear myself 
from the only stem I've ever known
so that your wish
may rouse itself from slumber
and glisten just like morning dew
