escape


we couldn't sit around
and wait for spring
any longer.
with milla begging to sleep
anywhere
but in her own bed
and avi begging
to go swimming,
and my own tolerance
for communal living,
traffic, crowds
and polluted air waning,
it was time we escaped the city,
if only for a weekend.


horses were admired,


swings were swung,


sticks were played with,
puddles jumped in,


fresh air was breathed,


and of course,
we swam,
and we slept in beds
other than our own.

and as we enjoyed
the out of doors
milla finally began to complain
that she was freezing.

"you're frozen, mims?
what's cold?"
i asked.
"winter's cold!"
was her reply.

i promise babe,
spring can't be 
that far away now. . .
