My images of Sean–
The last baby to leave my body.
Blindfolded baby under the lights
Making me giggle as I worried.
Bipolar Baby – is that even possible?
Either screaming with real tears,
Or tumbling over with laughter.
Bottle with a straw.
Mr. Rogers. Ties. Jackets.
Basketball. Computers. Games. Girls.
Creases between his brows
Born in his baby forehead.
His grandchildren will put their fingers insides those lines.
Sean follows his brothers
Yet is his own person
Practical. Longs to please.
Worried. Always worried.
Or so it seems to those who don’t know his heart.
Of enough things that it sometimes feels like
Too much trouble to just go through the motions of a day.
Successful. That’s his future.
He doesn’t see it now.
I know Sean as I know myself.
