Working from home

I am working on a deadline
and every time she calls for me
I tell her one more minute

finally she comes downstairs
with pipe cleaners in her hair
and a toy leash
for a braid

she is wearing two capes backwards
and she has wrapped her toy tiger
in all the white clothes she owns

I’m Elsa and this is my white horse

she tells me in passing
as she turns the bathroom to ice

and I decide
not to feel guilty anymore
about working from home
since a little neglect
is obviously good
for their imagination.
