After all this

It started innocently enough
Those fingers entwined in my pant leg
(tugging fervently for attention)
Wide eyes and machine gun mouth
Rattling off question after question
Keen on getting to the point
Of why we should ban bedtime

You remember now how best to hide

Behind the closet door for just a moment of silence
