Smells Like Mommy & Me (Rough Draft)

Before she falls asleep
My daughter
pulls my arm to her nose
breathes in deep

Mommy, she says,
you smell like
pineapple
and
me
and
you

She smells her own skin

She says, Mommy,
I smell like
lemonade
and
you
and
me

Then she lets go
closes her eyes
drifts
into dreams of

pineapple
and lemonade
ponies
