Progenitor and Progeny


[Self Portrait, Piet Mondrian, 1918]

Progenitor and Progeny

–mickey morgan

Brick-backed and shuttered window, a stale halo

of conflicted virility locks around her

He contains the just-sprung child static

beneath his heartless side.

She sucks in breath mouthing tiny nipple-wishing

fingers teetering among the dry sticks

of two magnificent hands.

His brawny skull of disciplined hair locks right.

His forehead contracts from vertical yawn.

His mouth sets to Admirable Perseverance.

She knows each breath on the cliff’s edge over the hollow of him.
