Dragon Balls and Pokey Men

Titles often speak for themselves.
In this case, it is my daughter
who, obsessed with cartoon critters
and anime heroes, begs just thirty
more minutes of a night that
wanted to end an hour ago.
And I, I say “Okay, stay up,”
because tonight she remains
young, a kid, and I would always
rather have her in this space
than in that land of teenage angst,
lost early 20s, or somewhere
searching for her childhood
that I may have in some way
stolen had I said, “Off to bed,
you Charizard loving lady.”
