Today’s Poem

A Box To Be Born In


Because I was the second

child. Because I was born

months before my father’s

death. Because its impossible

to count the kindness, favors

my widowed mother granted

me. Because the tender needed

to reprimand a wrist went

against my sister. Because

a dead man’s son is a white,

walking, and sinless shadow.
