As I step into my daughter’s room
Going through
the revolving door
of time
She jumps
And in one swoop
Spins me right-back-out
Before I can even wink
At the TV she is watching.

For she cares for me
And knows well
That I am not old enough
To see programs
Such as these.

    i can always feel
    her grip on my heart
    she who fathered me
    and locked me in
    a love of concerns
    for each other

    Brillantly put.

    Back in my days, I had mastered the use of the “swap channel” button on the remote. Slightly more efficient than physically turning back curious parents 🙂
