when did we become the handsome fools?
cradling the promise of tomorrow

tell the king he's dead,
in his place a boy,
with soft pink skin,
mouth still wet.
Mother's joy.
Eyes still blue, but open,
not muddied by the worries of the world

Young ones will forge ahead
steady on, steady on, steady on

rely on tender hopes and dreams,
milk runs sour underneath our skins,
tethered to a boulder
besides your new hatched wings

the crutch of youth
underneath the weight of expectation
