I found this red plastic lid of some sort in the dirt at the park recently. It was lying there as if it were a button, the off-limits, red button you're never supposed to push unless you're in extreme danger. So I looked over both shoulders and I knelt down to push it.
I picked it up, tossed it in the air a couple times and decided it would be best to keep it. You never know when you might need a red button to push to rescue a mostly dead pirate from a hidden Pit of Despair through the trunk of a tree.
Or to take you to a land where your wild is welcome.
Or to invite the humans in this world to be a little softer around the edges, to make space for one another.
I tossed the red button into my purse and it landed somewhere in the dark recesses tucked between a glue stick and a lipstick. It's nice knowing it's there, should I need to push it.
