soft bedsheet shaping taut manhood
(with pleased, happy, content lover)
i bend over pink crib-stroller
soft cribsheet shaping Paoleen good
(with pleased, happy, content father)
relishing thrilled grand-fatherhood.
boyhood and manhood
is frenetic flexibility.
manhood and fatherhood
is generic responsibility.
fatherhood and grand-fatherhood
is genetic ability.)
