little boys


little boys playing in the yard

on the street

bikes blazing into the summer sun

pals and puppy dogs in tow

how much i have learned from you

in your little drama-drama dream world

of toy soldiers

and badges of honor

cuts and bruises

at the end of the day, dirty faces look up at mine

asking and demanding

feed me

clean me

be there for me no matter what i do

make nice with daddy and wash my clothes

all that i am depends on all that you are

mommy, mommy, mommy
