Beautiful Boy (a birthday poem)

The brown skin pervades all.

Scattered on your surface, your flesh

wrapped you as you exude a pretty aspect.

Your incarnation is undistorted avatar.


From my solid eyes I see

bizarre array of summation, your soul.

Oh Hermaphroditus! Collective dust brought to life,

farfetched intensity amassing my thoughts.


What else to behold?

The eyes, the chin, the cheekbones.

All gods gather on top of Olympus.

Jealousy is magnified upon this birth.
