Sudden Broken Reflection

Sometimes in the shop I see little kids with their dads and I hear them say things like:

“Please dad, can we?”
“Please dad, can I come with you?”
“Please dad?”

And the dads say “no” for whatever reason…

Sometimes down the rabbit hole, I hear the echoes of my own little boys as they would say things like:

“Please dad, can we?”
“Please dad, can I come with you?”
“Please dad?”

And I remember saying (too many times) “no” for whatever reason…

Now, here in the afters, I realize it’s me asking:

“Please boys, can we?”
“Please boys, can I come with you?”
“Please boys?”

And the silence says “no…”
