The plainest things

You are curled up on the couch with my phone
watching videos of yourself
from a few months ago

look at this, mama

you exclaim over and over
with the awe of a child at a zoo
as you show me footage
of you doing the plainest things

hanging on monkey bars
sitting on your granny’s couch
going to school

and since you don’t seem upset by it
I curl up next to you
and together we gasp
at all the amazing things
you used to do.
