Taller

Pink capris and polka
DOTS
Sparkles on her top

She muses at her reflection
WHITE
Bows and pigtails

To puppies on her socks, she
TWISTS
And turns, popping her heels

In and out, head cocked
LEFT
Then right, or up and down

Proud or cross, a
MOMENT'S
Satisfaction ending with

Pursed lips, wide stance,
HAND
On hip, one eye shut the other keen

Pirate blood is hot
RUSHING
For an instant, then calm

Eyebrows raised, hands crossed in
BACK
And toes turned in

Innocence is mischievous
BUT
Finally, elbows and triangles

A frown of determination
PRESSED
Lips and dimples, a sharp sigh

I’m going to be
TALLER
Than my bro, one day!
