Pitter Patter

Kriti Sodhi

Here in this warm room,

with stories of the past,

a bristling fire,

and fantasies of the future.

a knight in a kingdom

beautiful and brave

a dragon in a castle

both strong and afraid

pitter patter

a troll under a bridge

as big as a bull

a spider in a web

a contest of Athena and Arachne

pitter patter

a world where robots

control us

a world where books

turn to dust

pitter patter

a world like no other

where stereotypes

do not matter

pitter patter

But, here and now,

in this cozy room.

Reading, Dreaming, Believing, Blurring.

More, More, More.
