Rock On!

rock on

2:24 AM

The infant

In my arms

Demands

That she be

The center

Of the Cosmos

The minutes

Tick by slowly

As grandpa rocks

 

The creaking

Hardwood floor

Is trying

To get me

To remember

Some old

Ozzy tune

The minutes

Tick by slowly

As I rock on

 

Selfish now

But in 18

Years or so

She will

Sacrifice

Every part

Of herself

For another

The minutes

Tick by slowly
