Playground Rules

We all have red circles on our shirts
from guzzling Hawaiian Punch
at today’s picnic.

Most of us were too excited
to sit down and actually eat a hot dog.

There’s no such thing as personal space out here.
If you touch me, I’ll touch you back.
So what if there’s a huge pile-up
at the bottom of the curvy slide?
If there aren’t any adults watching,
none of us will cry and we’ll
just go do it again.

Headstrong,
unabashedly following our bliss
which is the here and now
We’re not old enough to be jaded.
