You sit on the chair
eating cheese and watching
The Sound of Music
which I let you do
for longer than I’d planned
because you keep saying

I love this part

even though you haven’t
seen it before

and then you turn to me
with a funny look
and tell me

mama, my feet are starting to fizzle

which I almost tell you
are called pins and needles
and I almost tell you
it’s because you haven’t moved for ages

but I realize
that it’s exactly
what it feels like
so I rub them
while we watch
until the end.
