Jake Collage

air waves fracture now
little boy leaps and snarls in
skeleton costume

incredible hulk
incarnate in my grandson
which costume is next?

peaceful saturday
sitting at my computer
loud boo splits the air

little figure darts
trail of giggles follow him
into the hallway

jake scares his nana
at each opportunity
i need heart pills! help!

small boy plays yahtzee
shakes and shakes dice in the cup
ow...my aching head

this child of my child
unfolds my heart like a rose
petals to the sun
