Heavy Hearted Son

i agree with him
maybe this is best
fast, like a band-aid
but i see sad eyes
oh to cradle, rock
kiss soft red hair
promiseĀ happiness
wrap him up tight
but it is her arms
he is missing
not mine


Little Boys


little boys make me think of
pockets full of treasures
climbing trees

but little boys can surprise us
with thoughtful pauses
childhood crushes
sadĀ hearts

because little girls
with long curly hair
100% on spelling tests
quiet laughs
aren’t always ready
to think of little boys at all
