Bunny ears

When I was young

I could not tie my shoes

My teacher

Miss Nancy

taught me the bunny ear method

Two loops

bound together

haphazard alliance

undone by noon

I grew used to less

Tripping over laces

Bidden or not

Fingers grow longer

Bolder

Demanding more

To know

Touch

Stroke

Tighten

Solve the mystery

at last

I weep for those wasted years

of bunny ears

How much sooner I should have known
