Doing your thing

You walk like you are Mr Steps Freely,
the inventor of walking.
Hips roll, knees bend, shin bones
point to the mountains
and toes curl like like Quavers.
I will never stand in your way.
You shovel Veggie Sticks into your mouth
as if your face needs a friend.
There will be a day you look back at us
unsure if we’ll stand in your way.
