Dinnertime Delay

Dinnertime Delay

Upside down trailers become forgotten
After my kids are brought in
Midstream of their playing.
Interrupted by the urgency of me saying
“It’s dinnertime.”

I forget the urgency
Of why it had to be right then.
Maybe I never knew it in the first place
Because when I trace back time
To the moment I’m

Saying “It’s dinnertime.”
I’m left with a hunger for
Giving them more
Time to play
A lengthier dinnertime delay.
