now we are less small


we are here.

we were small. now we are less small.  somehow.

there are small ones yet.

and we will guide them toward music. naturally.

often I believe that i am able to see everything at once.

clearly this is  false

given that when i am with my son

he is all that i seem able to see.

sometimes in retrospect,

after we have returned home from a crowded place

restaurant, fair, market, concert, game

I realize in a stab of wider periphery

that i missed so much

by focusing only on my son.

so much so

that i missed seeing most of all,

my son.

how do we do this, we that are less small?
