Nolie is Seven in 2006

He is gap-toothed and lisping
and I want a time machine.
The digital snapshot/screensaver
is not enough.
The suffocating fear of computer crashes,
technology leap-frogging over my back,
grips me and tells me
the smile will crash
catch a virus
get wormed.
But a box, magic like snow,
may take me in 10 years
to this moment
where he spits Fruit Loops
through a gap and says
Thee what I can do?

This piece, I reckon, cannot fail to make the reader smile. ^_^

But a box, magic like snow,

Now, those lines are simply marvelous.

where he spits Fruit Loops
through a gap and says
Thee what I can do?


And those render such a vivid picture.

Thank you. ^_^
