smiles like that

I think I
maybe smiled once.
not like the
image painted onto
my face the day we met,
but more like
the six-year-old
who just met
santa clause
while waiting for a
train in Chicago
during the
middle of
november.
the way he smiled
reminded me of
moments more
carefree,
and of a face that
maybe had a
smile behind it
when I stared at
books of poetry
at six years old
the way;
a six-year-old
today smiles
at
Santa Clause.
