Poem-A-Day #35 : Stairwell

Stairwell

Around the corner          the sound of a child          counting the steps

          I turn and the family                magazine perfect

Handsome and new                and counting steps                together

                They smell good                I sort of want this

Even though I don't                that smell                in a bottle on my shelf

          I could open it every morning          find the number of steps
