New School, Old Children

The expensive school divides his day
into a thoughtful educational rainbow:
circle time,
center time,
units of discovery.

Above the rainbow
the same sun shines.
The clouds of childhood
build, break,
change their shape.

What was your favorite part
I ask my son at the end of every day.
Carpool line, he finally says,
gifting it to me in a whisper.
Robert gave me an Indian burn.
