boy is but a boy
he (who lives beside
pebbles rocks stones salts)
so much closes his fingers
clasped

he she i mean boy
wiggles his feet (his
fish tail)
amidst humiliation
amidst the hes

shames he never
stands his true
his heart craves (what
he craves)
pebbles rocks stones salts
he dives unto them
(free at last)
