Existentialism

You sat on our deck today
at the big table
on your own
and demanded pizza
your chin up to the sky
like a plea to God
even though you’ve never asked
for a particular food before
and you sat there
waiting for it
practicing your laugh
that sounds like a woodpecker
and when it made me laugh
you said
mama happy
and I knew
I would tell you one day
that I witnessed the moment
you realized
there was space
between you
and the world.
