Nine ku for my son’s beginning on its sixteenth anniversary
a positive test field mice breed in the walls
barely alive you already disagree with me about what to eat
wind from the west a body shifts in my body
Ides of March on the ultrasound screen your state of incompletion
love’s effects visible I read from Corinthians to the wedding
drawn by heat you try to arrive but they restrain you
after my water breaks another solitaire loss
the maze of my bones cracking open too slowly
I don’t know
anything about you,
then you emerge

This is really quite beautiful.
Thanks so much, Bill!
