my little wonder

7:05 a.m.
i wonder if i have school today.
i wonder if there’s food for breakfast.
I wonder if mama knows.
I wonder if mama’s awake.

I wonder if mama knows.
I wonder if they like to swim.
i wonder what i could put water in to check it out.
i wonder if mama would be mad if i gave myself a bath in the hot wheels water.

i wonder where that scissors is that mama used yesterday.
i wonder if i’m going to go for a haircut this week.
i wonder if mama knows.
i wonder if it would help mama if i found her scissors.
i wonder if her scissors would cut hair.
i wonder if mama would be mad if i gave myself a haircut.

i wonder if mama’s awake.
i wonder if she’ll be so proud of me for feeding myself and giving myself a bath and finding her scissors and cutting my hair.

7:06 a.m.
