if you were my child i would make you a special costume, whatever you wanted. it would have magical powers and i would let you wear it anywhere, until it no longer fit. we would always have snowball fights and after i would put whipped cream and marshmellows on your hot chocolate. you would know what ferns smelled like and how to make head dresses from them. i would make your favorite pie on your birthday and tell you stories every night. every morning i would ask you what you dreamed about because i would need to know. we would howl when we stood at the edges of cliffs or tall buildings and grunt when we were cuddling. i would learn the names of every star.
just so i could tell you
where you came from.
