the first thing

the first thing you will find out
is that they are all starving.
you will need all your mother instincts
to bear their ravenous appetites
their urgent, ungentle handling.
you will need to remember
that they are near to panic:
cool-casual but running on empty
for so long. feed them first,
then wait to see what men live
beneath those hunger pains
so constant that they go unnoticed
until you invite them to
a feast.
