a little boy grown big

milk shake with whipped cream on top,
3-d glasses in hand,
a smile as wide as a Nebraska horizon
his whole body wagging like a puppy
in heaven,
he's ready!
Movie night at the cinema,
Star Wars!
Storm Troopers against Rebels,
Flying machines, mid-air collisions,
Darth Vader and the Force of the Jedi,
the milkshake will somehow disappear
even though we're on a diet,
and we'll forget politics for a moment,
Good will triumph in the galaxy!
