The Kids

The Kids

These kids
with beards
and tight jeans
drink whiskey
till 4 a.m.

Eyes radiate
with Idea
to become what
their parents
could not.

If they only knew
day-to-day
weight accumulates
like cigarette butts
on a lakeshore
if they only knew
their father’s hollowed eyes
like frightened animals
became that way
despite feeling
as they do now.
