and i will wish (for betsy)

one day the dirty laundry will find their way to the hamper and shouts and loud laughter at ungodly hours will quiet, and empty peanut butter jars won’t sit open on my counter--

and boys will become men.

and i will wish for three open cartons of milk, and wet towels to be strewn across the floor and all this life, messy and loud-- and for beds filled with stinky headed boys.
