To make you smile

Give me your hand.
I will pencil a pinwheel to your palm.
Does it tickle?
I make the @ sign,
start with centre.
Slow successive spirals.
There.

I will notice your yawns.
Tell you how to cure your hiccups.
(Tickle just in front of the uvula)

Obey your suggestions
as if they are commands,
because you know what to do.
How to speak.

I see you.

I will tell you that you are just like that girl
in The Polar Express.
One day, you will lead many.
And, I will follow you to the moon and back.
