Year 2: Day 83 – Until The Battery Dies

Old toy bracelet from a carnival,
things we throw away,
flashing pale blue light
until the battery dies.

Cold glass of water in the middle of the night,
the kitchen is pulsing
with a pale blue light
until the battery dies.

Are days enough
for the trash to fill
to take the thing outside-

are children’s fears enough
to make an extra trip?

Old toy bracelet from a carnival,
glass of water left by the bed,
children outgrow their fears
soon enough.
