Patience

My parents pour me small glasses of soda;
I can’t seem to handle an entire can.
I tell them that will be the first thing I do
when I’m 18. I’m going to drink
as much soda as I want.

I like family vacations in Florida,
I get all the chocolate milk I want
and I drink it out of wine glasses.
I pretend my baseball cap is a spaceship
and I watch it slowly
drift into the bottom of the motel pool
so I can dive down and bring it back again.
