boy visits the blue theatre

thinking of how a boy became the boy
hairy legs and all

so sweet in a suit 

or 

in a t-shirt and yellow shorts 

the babe is perpetually performing
— this time for him 

a dream — 

the blue curtain falls 

nature actually missed something
( she was too busy responding to emails )
shame 

our game got stronger 

the stakes — higher 

as time carried on shrinking faster 

ex-ducklings and ex-cocoons 

now know better whom to choose
