you sound like my mom

the odds are 1-in-

the odds are 1-in-
2 that your youth
will be served
on a silver
platter
. by all
means, take
advantage while
you can – nothing
is guaranteed

at what age does greed

at what age does greed
and ownership
become less
of a sign for
intelligence and
self-awareness
and more
a sign of
things to come

we are born

we are born
unequal
– the young
man being verbally
abused by his
mother on the
train is not the
fourteen-year-old
girl being
intimately
questioned on the
sidewalk by her
social worker is not
the sweetheart in her
mother’s doting
arms is not the
college-bound
boy learning to be
brave on his
own – we are
born unequal,
and even then,
none of it
is for certain
.

you can tell as early

you can tell as early
as eighteen months

the ones who will
develop that
Byronic ilk.
caught near
the beginning –
as luck would
have it – there
will be plenty
of opportunities
to polish that
mysterious past
for festering grief
.
