like a mouth watering

and yet, i feel me sooth myself
an old woman patting my thigh
there, there, it will come in time
and for now, foolish child
there is today

i forget sometimes about the larger world
and that i can, in fact, walk out into it

and yet~

although winter is still all around me

at my window is spring
this is what i look to with hope
