under the cell phone light

little child
at the table
eyes wide
in curiosity

look up at me

your face is
so pale
in the light
of your cell phone

and i forget
the features
for you stay
in its shadows

claw away from
the grasp of
the future
for just a moment

and talk to me

my time
is very short
and yours
is very fast

slow down
and talk to me
