Secrets


life theories
unable to join
never thought I’d hear
the deafening silence
can you find
the silence
lend an ear
this is not just
the beginning
pause the show
for a minute or two
stand behind your brothers
wake again to
breed the female
a slow death of air
a baby’s laughter
is the greatest price
of fear

A Mother’s Son


subscribed to the
rights of the heart
maybe i need to know
waiting on a burning fire
awake again
to navigate
reach out your hand
my version of you
for a mother’s heart
a rapid melt
these protections
good or bad
we asked for
waiting or staying
one or another
sleep soundly
just as he is
poorly understood
birth of a friend
to give the most
he was her son
