Kid



Spiky hair,
brittle waves,
porcupine,
hedgehog,
spiny Anteater,
echidna.

A kid
growing up
prickly.
The long tongues
of children
gibe him sharp.

Tumbleweed in the schoolyard.
Can’t tread him down.
Hurts are on the surface
like frozen
alphabet spaghetti.

Thorns and barbs,
jagged...

Encouraging him to lick ants off me.

Kid
Spiky hair.
Brittle.
Porcupine,
hedgehog,
spiny anteater
echidna,
kid.

Grow up prickly.
Grow up quick.
They raze -
rib dig.

Hurts in his alphabet soup.
Jeers jar.
quills quiver.

Curled up,
face tucked
into heart.
