Title: SHOVED AT MEMORIAL PARK
A big kid is eyeballing my son.
The big kid is four years old.
I hate him already.
Fletcher is two and a half,
Trip-tropping over the playground,
A tiny fish on a busy reef.
Swirling over ladders, platforms, slides,
Riding and fighting for the eddies.
Fletcher in baggy shorts,
Finding the gaps
For a quiet turn on things.
He knows about stairs and ovens and knives
But who is this large
And fierce boy?
From the shadows of his oversized cap
He watches the talk,
The nudge and then
Noisy fish flapping overhead.
My son at the bottom of a hard new world
