The Walk In

No, Dear, I was not hurting Mommy.

Well, she may have been making hurt noises but she was okay.

Yes, yes, it was kind of like wrestling … only different.

No, you are right; wrestlers do usually wear some kind of outfit.

Well, I guess in this kind of wrestling, they are not pinned after three seconds on their back … although Mommy may say it feels like only three seconds.

Never mind that.

Yes, sometimes Mommy wins and pins me.

I guess I do make those noises when I am loosing, although I never mind loosing.

Yes, I know Mommy and Daddy are always telling you to keep your hands to yourself, but it’s okay for Mommies and Daddies to do that.

NO!  NO!  You can’t wrestle with your friends.  Not yet, anyway.

Sometimes we wrestle in other places beside our bed.

No, not with other people … at least, I hope not!  Why?  Have you ever seen Mommy wrestling with someone else?

Ummm, wouldn’t you like to watch some TV or something?

I know you just want to know, but, um Daddy is kind of busy right now.

Doing what?  Well, something important I’m sure.

Honey!  Can you come in here and talk to your daughter?

    Very cute poem, Joe, kids do ask the most uncomfortable questions at times, thanks so much for reading my poetry, yes, I am in somewhat of a dark place at the moment, but I still have ability to write poetry and it will heal me. Love Constance

    WHoa! Now that's a conversation any man would find very difficult to have - and the inevitable 'talk to your daughter' LOL! Very well written Joe!

    A writer of all, a master of none but...I know when I read a poem if I have enjoyed it. Now I have read yours and I have indeed enjoyed it Joe. I wish you a wonderful weekend and hope you find much inspiration to continue with your writing endeavors. Love, Carol
