A merry go round in the middle of the park,
and I can’t help but spin it for the ghosts
or twirl it for the daydreams.
I settle in the throne of the swings
and rock myself back and forth
through my memories
and future endeavors.
It is said that when you grow up
then you should trade in the toys
for responsibility.
I keep a tiny doll shoe in my pocket
so always have something
to slip on my imagination
when it wants to take my mind on a spin
