There’s Hope

the infant male
with demanding colic
stands before me now
his cigarette poised
before the match
and he says
this treatment program
is good — they’re tough
these are veterans

then we talked more
and became real and
had tears in our eyes

i love you infant male
my adult addict son
there is yet hope
