yesterday,
a boy looked in the mirror & saw
the reflection of his father in his
wedding suit.

he fists bumped the mirror & shattered
the thought of finding
a wife.

today,
a boy desired to know what he
looks like when he’s at the verge
of climax

he peered into his lover’s eyes & saw
a reflection of his father in his
funeral clothes

tomorrow,
a boy will rehearse the memories of yesterday
while flipping through the pages
of an old diary

his eyes will become misty with salt particles
his shoulders will drop like sun-beaten vegetables
he will desire the warmth of a woman’s embrace

he’ll get cold shivers
instead

a boy was never a preacher
of love
