With-Child: Hys Boyhood

These days
I fantasize
About giving
My child
Hys first
Makeup book.

When hys (boyhood)
Is first trampled
Will it feel fine
Will it feel like
Shedding a skin.

Growing toward an
Eventual end.
Strange how one
Has that look
Before the fall.

Will life wear
hym like denim,
On the rough days.

Will it sit
And sew old
Parts of hym
Together, in
Preparation
For the coming
Winter.

Growing toward an
Eventual end.
Strange how one
Has that look
Before the fall.

Will hys friends
Hold hym in
their arms when
Hys day has
Fallen behind.

Will hys boat
Leave a shore
battered and patched
only,
To find another
Preparing for war.

Growing toward an
Eventual end.
Strange how one
Has that look
Before the fall.

Will hys feminine,
hold
As it’s assaulted
By masculine animations,
And will what
Is left of
hys withering, eventually
dissolve.

Or by hys
Time, will both
Of these visions
Have been razed
In favor of
Gardens.

Growing toward an
Eventual end.
Strange how one
Has that look
Before the fall.

Hys life holds
New territory in
My thoughts, to
The point where
Hy’ll appear from
Out of nowhere

With-Child: Hys Body

Will hys body
Rob hym of
Joy, and leave
Friends in failure
Joints in disarray

Or, will hys
Body become sacred
And kept well
As a folded
Blanket, across feet

Will hys body
Be self-celebratory
Cleansed each morning
And salted with
care, to taste

Or, will hys
Body become trained
Like mine was
And learn to
Crush shells, wanton

Of course it
might, that’s the
Intrinsic anger of
Hys male body
Hys male

Growing toward an
Eventual end.
Strange how one
Has that look
Before the fall.
