April 8th

I hear children playing
in the sun
who finally decided
to show.

I feel the need
to spend some time
with my oldest
son.

I taste our time
is drawing near
in two years
he’ll be gone
to college.

Over lunch
and in the car
we try to see
parts of his life
planned out ahead.

Clean, manly scents
fill the air
as we stop by for a cut.

So that
into his future
he’ll be able to
strut.
