a poem for parents stuck at home with their kids

More Cowbell (Easter Memories)
 
In diapers you would cause
and effect Easter eggs against rocks
just to hear the sound
of them break
 
Your coyote mind
shattered curious glass
oceans with a stone’s
throw
 
Even now you test
my calm to prove
that love is stronger
than your rollercoaster.
 
I could harness time
drive my car slower than an OG,
hibernate, close my eyes
& let the wind swallow me whole
 
but nope.
 
The chiller I zen,
the louder you cowbell.
