until noon

until noon
by daniel mcnair
dressing up like adults
playing the parents
and apparently our disguises worked
because they didn’t even recognize us
for what we really are
feeling too old to be there
sitting with you
on that bench
picking paper from rocks
eyes down
feeling too young to be anywhere
and when I finally took you home
you left your shoes in the hall
and we didn’t wake up until noon
