They beam summer red

dribbling on her mini thigh

while the nurse checks her labs.

He is her comforter

a teddy bear when the catheter comes.


Tiny text. Fair font.

A spray of sea.

A wash of greenery.


His mouth opens crazy

eyes bulging

to make her shriek

with gladness


Outside each frame

I sit rigid behind the lens



grateful that my miniature joy monster and I

are never alone.
