HOME

at home he could not sleep
the first night or the fifteenth
they put him in front of the television
but that would only make him scream

so they gave him some picture books
with colorful pictures to look at
but colors hurt his eyes and then he would just continue to scream
and tear the pages out

and his hands shook
and his eyes went crooked
and he looked like he had something that he wanted to say

so they gave him a plastic bin
that was at least twice his size
the bin contained wooden blocks with ABCs carved in

and a rattle
and a plastic baby flute
and a toy piano with twelve fat keys too

and his hands shook
and his eyes went crooked
and he looked like he had something that he wanted to say (but...)
