of monsters and boys

For the first day of school (in Bulgaria) I thought I would share one of my poems from Scars that Never Bled. Check out this video, read the poem, and make sure to pick up a copy.

of monsters and boys

mama holds him  snug against her breast  night darkens his room  but mama lights a candle  to protect him  from darkness from loneliness from monsters before he can gurgle she whispers their secrets in his eager ears a monster is different it is bigger  stronger it can hurt us  he trembles in her arms such a fragile thing  she soothes him  monsters are  stupid and evil and evil never wins we are the same  and have goodness to protect us mama blows out the light  kisses his frightened brow before he learns to walk he knows monsters are different and he is good
