Kitchen dancer

 he wants to wear dresses
 he wants to be pretty   
 he wants to put on music and dance
he wants to twirl around
to feel free in all his unencumbered two-year-old ways
then his big sister says he can't  
that boys don't wear dresses
my heart breaks a little for him
I hope somewhere deep down he remembers
the nights in the kitchen when she's asleep already
I pull out the dresses and put on the music
we dance together 
so he can feel beautiful too
