He is growing up,
Say the clothes of different sizes hanging neatly in the closet.
He is cared for,
Say the washed clothes sitting folded and the hot food on the table.
Scream the multiple devices, new and overused.
Say his small friends list and the way he describes his day.
By the younger sister whose fluffy pink toys and colorful drawings fill the house
Say the unfinished list of chores hanging on the friddge.
Says the stacks of board games and the number of hours online.
Not one for sports, with no trophies, medals, or banners anywhere.
Prefers the indoors, says the under-used pool.
Say the models, action-figures, collectibles, and lore books.
But neat, with all those things placed in harmony.
