“you’re supposed to leave a trail!”
he exclaimed
seven years old and frustrated
two failed attempts as seeker
into our afternoon of hide-and-seek

i’m sure he didn’t mean
footprints in the mud
broken twigs
or even ribbons tied to trees
but rather some part of me
yet sticking out enough
to catch his eye

are we playing a variation
of this game as well?
is my writing enough
of a trail for you
or am i still
too well hidden?
