this afternoon he had my phone
and this afternoon he found tinsley

mommy, was she breathing in this picture?
why does she look splotchy?
is that your blood or her blood?
how come her eyes are closed?
and he looked sadly at her
and we went round and round

mommy, this picture is very scary —
he pointed to the large double knot
he squinted at the shriveled cord
he learned it made her heart stop beating
and he gasped
and we went round and round

but mommy, how did that knot happen?
why did that tangle happen?
wait, can that knot happen to big boys?
oh i’m so glad that didn’t happen to henry
and he sighed in relief
and we went round and round

mommy, where did her body go?
but is she in the box without clothes?
oh, i’m glad she has a snuggle friend, too
but why can’t we dig her up to see her?
and i held my breath
and he waited for me to exhale
and we went round and round

and we went round and round
