Poetic Exploration of the Heart

Little Boys

Little Boys

I bet you don’t know how much food
two little boys can devour
in less than an hour.
And keep on asking for more,
hour after hour,
until the fridge is empty
and there is nothing left
to devour.

And all I do
day after day
is cook, wash, and clean.
There is no time
for me
in between.

And sometimes
I get frustrated
and like a puma mother
I bite
but animal instinct
never lets me
get them out of my sight.

And when at night
these two race cars
finally hit on a brake
I watch them
as they lie sleeping
and I can feel
my heart break.
