Untitled, Ryan at eight years old

Untitled                                                             for Ryan at eight years

 

It scared me watching you.

I saw the first hint

of a man in your bones.

 

Laying beneath your next

growth spurt, the outline of you

rested, waiting, an imposter

 

ready to steal your cheekbones,

your chest, daring me

to whisper hello.
