Happy Face

By Justine C. Tajonera

Things need to
get done.
The clock moves
forward, relentlessly,
bleeding from
one hour to
the next.

But everything stops
when I see his
happy face,
even the one
he puts up for
purely illustrative

Moment melts
into moment,
stretching apart
like well-loved taffy
and anticipated mozzarella.

A separate world
consisting of
lollipops and pink
frosting and
blocks that turn
into robots
out of nowhere,
reassuring me
that happiness
has no
