For My Boys

For My Boys

when I met you I realized
how inept I was,
how nothing was a sure thing
anymore

and then you grew
despite me

tasted the first lick of blood on your lips
and survived

said to me, “Let’s have a conversation,”
that began with a long pause,
waiting for me to start

“how was your day?”
