Stair Game

Stair Game
By: James Dubeau

I remember that day
When you held me
In your arms
At the base of the stairs
In the old house
Back in Maine
I couldn’t have been
Any older than two
Maybe three
At the most
You held me
In your arms
I held Snoopy
In my arms
We had played a game
Since Snoopy was big
As big as me
Where I would scamper
Up the stairs
Then you would toss him
To my waiting arms
But that night
You said to me
How about I toss you
Up the stairs
Filled my brain
As I shouted
Wiggled free
To scamper up those stairs
For you to toss
Up to me
