I didn’t write “See
a squirrel run across an
electrical wire outside
your second story window
so you can catch your
breath in awe
on my list of to-do’s
I was much more practical

“See art”
“Explore sites”
“photograph memories”
rather than
“be in wonder
of what shows up”

It took a
childhood unconditional
companion to remind me
