365 Days of Poetry: Day Two-Hundred and Fifty

how hard is it to understand?
I know your two brain cells.
are at war every day, but.
I have been expected to.
work around your problems.
for many years.

revenge is a dish best.
served cold, and my.
favorite book has lots.
of object lessons on how.
if this were the middle ages.
you’d have to accept.
all of this with a smile–
or lose your head.

you’ve not been right or.
fulfilled a promise since.
we started this, your.
concern has been for.
the body, not the person.
inside and I, I am sick.
of crying because you are.
a boy, not a man.
just a boy under his.
mommy’s care.
