Let’s run in fields and fear the dark together
fall off swings and burn special things
and both play outside in bad weather

Let’s both reclaim our superpowers
the ones we all have and lose with our milk teeth
the ability not to fear social awkwardness
to panic when locked in the cellar
still sure there’s something down there
and while picking from pillows each feather
let’s both stay away from the edge of the bed
forcing us closer together

from “Grow Up With Me” by Keaton Henson
