Parental Pride
(Son Poems)

My day-old son
is plenty scrawny ..
his mouth is wide
with screams, or yawny.

His ears seem larger
than he’s needing ..
His nose is flat
his chin’s receding.

His skin is very,
very red ..
He has no hair
upon his head.

And yet I’m proud
as proud can be ..
To hear you say
he looks like me.
