My daughter’s smudge

One wet finger
of my free hand
Wet from baby formula
Hits letters on the keyboard
to type these words
My baby nestled
in the crook
The crook of my left shoulder
The suck suck suck
dummy noise
Reminds me of Maggie Simpson
I can barely read these words
These one wet fingered words
Through my daughters curious smudge
My daughters smudge on my glasses
Sometimes that dummy gets boring
Sometimes you just need to
smudge something
Something, anything,

with wet fingers.
