PAOLO TO PAOLEEN: Genetics
(Me: at 26, a father; at 47, a grandfather)

1982 –
i slip under white bed-cover
soft bedsheet shaping taut manhood
(with pleased, happy, content lover)
anticipating fatherhood…

2005 –
i bend over pink crib-stroller
soft cribsheet shaping Paoleen good
(with pleased, happy, content father)
relishing thrilled grand-fatherhood.

(between
boyhood and manhood
is frenetic flexibility.

between
manhood and fatherhood
is generic responsibility.

between
fatherhood and grand-fatherhood
is genetic ability.)

– between
 generic and genetic
is continual conflict.

– between
dogma-of-Creation and theory-of-Evolution
is continuing-confusion.
