you in the living room singing songs of praise
Go Tell It on the Mountain in pajamas,
then dancing to your mother’s techno music.
You’d ask me, what hat should I wear to play catch?
You’d talk about snakes and herpetology,
Athlon Sports rankings, pretend game announcing.
You told us your thoughts and shared your ideas.
Now, it’s quiet with ear buds, iPhone, Twitter.
Driving down the road, not much said by anyone.
