After school, a Down’s boy

climbs eleven steps to his room, puts on

a DVD, drops himself into magic,

colour, drumming; this is a time to be:

a time of sweet adolescence, childlike wisdom,

in love with attending to buttons, his world’s Aladdin,

asking, wishes, lost in treasure troves.


  1. What a beautiful posting on this special day. The heavens are smiling down on you.

  2. My favorite line, "drops himself into magic."

    Happy Holidays.
