My Definition of a Boombastic Poetry Style

Photograph by Jose Padua
Going up to bed early
on the night before
his first day of school for the year
our four year old son asks,
“Is Daddy coming up too?”
and my wife says,
“No he’s staying awake
to write poems,”
and our son says,
“Poor Daddy,”
because already at this
young age he understands that
poetry is a motherfucker
even though he
doesn’t yet know
how
to say it.
