she’s curled up in her quiet space, with the end of the daylight slowly shrinking away over her shower fresh face.
keep your voice down, like the sun setting over the playground.
she’s tired and your needs are now your own issue; solve them like you try to solve the 1,000 piece puzzle.

make sure you don’t flutter, like the butterfly you are.
keep it still, like the caterpillar you wish you could be.
