It's quite something to hear a small boy calling his mother a "Bad Mommy".

 ***

"Naughty mummy!"

a kindergartener scolds his mother
for dragging him up the bus, he

h o   w    l     s

his complaint in baby talk,
an imitation of a tough guy
an older brother or uncle,

                    almost cute
his small face
pulling a frown
until it is red.

Clearly, he is winning
making this scene
for muM is more concerned
he is not too upset;

promising him ice cream

if he would just once
be a good boy to her.
