thank you for finding every dragon in my bedroom
and telling them all
they couldn't stay.
Thank you for talking to all the snakes
and letting just the nice ones stay.
(But only after you made them promise to behave.)
(But actually, I don't want any of them.)
Thanks for agreeing with me
that you are an amazing, awesome NuNu.
("Yes!" You say, as if, "of course!"--
throwing your arms out to embrace this too.)
And thanks for tucking me in around 6 p.m.
It's cozy in bed.
