Day follows Day

Day follows day

Night becomes

An endless series

Of tosses

And love untended

Still grows

Among the weeds and trash

Forgotten but not

In the heart that held it close

Always

There

Always there.

Grown

the slow roll of your eyes,

the tilt of your head,

the sneer of my lips,

judging another’s youthful enthusiasm,

joy for joy’s sake,

labeling her cuz you grown,

you grown cuz you gots a baby,

but any fool can spread her legs,

and let a man in…

To be really grown,

Grown Your Mind, Far and Wide,

After you open it.
