ode to dragons and press on tattoos

oh childhood. your simplicity was so astounding. when everyday could be whatever you wanted. a dragon in the clouds was not uncommon.

oh childhood. when tatoos meant a trip to the drug store. and it was okay to put on seventeen, or even more.

oh childhood. how did you escape from me. when did shoes and clothes replace beanie babies.

oh childhood. might i have you back. i want to be with the children as they laugh.

oh childhood, you slipped through my life like the sand in a glass. youre hazy hot days too perfect to last.

childhood- the most magical simplicity.
