The Day You Danced in the Cheerios

I had always been saying,
“I have one son and a baby.”
You were still so little
Even though you could stand
And yell and play.

But today you changed:
Today you both ganged up on me.
Your brother poured out the Cheerios
In a mountain
On the green shag
While you danced
Crunch, crunch, crunch!
You danced on the Cheerios
And screamed in delight
At the discovery of what
You could do together

As brothers,
As boys
In kahoots.

And I stood there shocked.
Suddenly I had two sons;
Like Pinocchio,
You had turned into a real boy
Before my eyes
Before I was ready.
