cliche thoughts

January 31, 2010

two days ago,
at just this time,
you weren’t.

and then you were,
with screams,
with kicks,
with little, furious fists
mad at the world,
making sure that you were heard.

and now you’ve somewhat mellowed,
allowing me to think:
about who you are;
and who you were;
and who you yet will be;
about what you will do to me.

    I swear, there’s just some celestially ethereal ability to write incredible poetry as the result of becoming a father.
