Mother of Invention

Mother of Invention

are the Mother of Invention
when it comes to creation

a basic necessity! 
of time well spent transcending 
typical order escalating Form 
from inside out of your 
mind, headstrong!

started it! 
this ornery conception 
now pointing fingers refusing 
to comply so keen to cut
the cord and launch!

snuggly into bed under 
the guise of crisp cool sheets
wriggling giggling 
just out of reach! 
You lunge for your squeeze 
and it leaps, triumphant!
so happy to be  

free of you
for good ?? 

this wriggly invention 
first withstand
: a few more tweaks
: another round or two?
: could be years
: for true refinement but 

take this hug for when
your baby invention 

sets out, headstrong! 
from the center of yours
to change the World.
