They were here for my party
many of them the great nieces
and nephews a next generation
of family a running laughing
crying chasing crawling climbing
storytelling fabricating inundating 
ruminating obfuscating chaos-making 
extension of my six brothers and sisters
Seda Nico Hako Sasha Rowyn Sylvie Arlo Alaia
well-intentioned loving selves in and out of house
and yard to and fro with their many plans and ideas
taking root flowering falling discarded in favor 
of new exciting others that shoot forth
willynilly oh how they wake us from
the dull sleep of adulthood.
