Busted!

Mister skateboarder, thinking you’re cool;
Flexing and posing on the way to school.
You think you’re so hot. You think you’re really cooking
But I saw you hitch your shorts up when you thought no one was looking.

Little Boys/Little Girls

Little Boys
they’re not supposed to
wear Mom’s make-up so how come
girls can shoot toy guns

Little Girls
go on. play doctor
but when you grow up people
will still yell “hey, nurse!”

Saturday 4:30

Skateboard clacks by on dry pavement.
Boys on bicycles and boys running, calling to each other in the street.
Lawnmower coughs then thrums next door.
Sun coruscates through the blinds;
Leafy shadows on the comforter.
Stiff cotton sheets replace snuggly flannels.
Stretching my toes way out, I can almost
Touch the amiable space your body made
On afternoons like this.

Ambiguous State

The unbalanced boy
Stood
On
The
Chair
To slot the last few cards into his tower.
