A promissory note from your favorite toy

He looks up at me
quizzically, innocently
daft as anything
with a leaf clinging
to the side of his face
i laugh but I’m also
impossibly sad for a minute
because what a silly,
defenseless thing
with no self awareness
i know that he needs me

I say, ok honey
I’m not leaving
not ever,
not really
