My Boys Right Now

Car and Fuzzy

Have to be 

In the same room

As him.

Three is all 

About tragedy.

The other

The elder

Is older now.

The first baby

I ever held

Now rides a bike

And sasses back

Because Mom

Says no

To more robots.

The first

The man

Who holds me close

Dreams of the sea

Far away

From the fires

And metals

He works

Day by day.

He loves me still

And tenderly,

But man

If he could only

Get a good night

Of sleep,

Or his hair

Wasn’t starting

To thin.
