My toddler daughter said “Juice!”

standing by the ‘frig,’

her finger pointing in the shape of a ‘C.’

 

This word covered all liquids

red liquids staining our carpet

All the sodas we poured for her.

 

God, now there are swills

tempting her friends,

drinking underage.

 

I miss the stains.
