did you go rub that
balloon in your hair?
is that why it sticks
on the wall up there?

i don’t need your static
so please don’t touch me
ow! must you pass spark
of personal electricity?!

boys are such joys —
he laughs ecstatically

    It was so fun playing with static… a lot of fun sparking the ear of someone.

    This is splendid fun and reminds me of my kids when they were young. Love this! It’s the spontaneity that makes it so fun. ❤

    I had completely forgotten about that little trick! This was a fun read. I enjoyed the sway of the rhyme and your different uses of “static”.
