Imagine if You Will

If you open your mouth
a baby will grab for your teeth,
maybe even your tongue.

When they see your nostrils
a baby will stick a finger there
like they're new-found caves.

And if your eyes are wide open
and you're sitting too close,
a baby will take a poke at one.

What happens when we grow up?

No more grabbing someone's glasses
And perching them on our own nose.

Imagine if you will, if we could still*
transcend the space between us
and explore one another
like a child.

*A tribute to Mr. Rogers
