the upstairs little human

under the ceiling
above the ground where im dozing tonight
(hoping to rise before the dew so nobody notices i was comatose here for 3 hours) (tired)

there is a little human
with big footsteps

crashing above me is a great patriotic celebration


as she triple jumps from a spot on the floor
that is less brown than the area around it
a cooler tan color revealing habitual interaction
with these big small feet
worn away hardwood

after this display of
podiatric pediatrics
is a show filled with what must be heavy footed
horses, giraffes, elephants, horses, humans, lions
et cetera

it’s a circus up there, man
