His infant self

21 Aug

Woodside Queens, New York City, New York

He was a 14 yr. Old tyke
playing in his daddy’s closet
nestling in his daddy’s socks
curled up his daddy’s sweaters
tossing up his daddy’s knickers.

His daddy and his daddy’s buddy
cackling and taking photos.

What maniacs.
What could they possibly be laughing at?

Don’t they have better things to do than to laugh at babies rolling around
in a pile of laundry?

He was just a toddler.

What was their excuse?
