Before I was one
article by
Michelle Knickerbocker

from when I was tiny
and the world was
new and big
Vacation slideshows
clicking from frame to frame
a 70’s viewfinder
my favorite toys
the dancing apple
wind chime melodies 
soft, soothing;
the wooden rattle
that clacked and clacked
the smell of wet wood
when I tried to taste
the sounds
the beads made

    Yes! Close as our noses!
