The image seems too small
My son only appears in the corner
He is moving quickly
as usual
Trying to show me something
Dada dada
and opening his eyes wide
and whispering loudly
and tilting his head
It is a toy jet I think
or maybe a Transformer car
or just a coloured pencil
I can’t tell
The connection goes blurry
but I don’t want to stop his flow
Then he wants to say goodbye
and is told to say “I love you dada”
So he does
Twice and then again
And he is looking for the red button
and laughing and moving
and he finds it
and everything is too quiet.
