Sun Magazine prompt: pretending

Patiently sitting with the girls I
Recognize their make-believe beliefs with an inward smile
Each transfer of
Tiny toys from hand to hand to sister
Elephants and zebras of plastic
Never a fight or argument between girls OR toys
During these parallel universes
Inventive action sequences play out as
Nearly ballet, and choreography is nimble; they
Get up and expand the loop of time/space out, out to the sandbox.
