NPM Day 5

He Is Too Young and It Is Too Complicated

he is too young and it is too complicated
and I know it and I know it and I know it
until I see him
all my sensibilities melt away
the body picks up where the mind leaves off
the tenderness in his eyes is intoxicating
the strength of his arms is hypnotic
and I know it and I know it and I know it
when we are not in the same orbit
occupying the same universe
then I see him
I smile way down inside
feel joy rising from dormant places
and he smiles at me
from his 6’ 2” chiseled frame
and he simply says ‘hello’
and I know it and I know it and I know it and I know it and I know it
and I know it by rote
little sally walker sitting in a saucer rise sally rise wipe your weeping eyes
put your hand on your hip and let your backbone slip
I know it like that
a lullaby, a fairytale, a once-upon-a-time-in-a-land-far-far-away story
but he is too young and it is too complicated
