Becoming

On the escalator
Bag checked
Boarding pass in hand
Waiting

A little boy
Dreams of change
Magical contraptions
Abracadabra

Dawning light
Body clean
Inside, Outside,
Ready, set, go!
Transforming

A young man
Wonders what
Girls feel
How they are
Different

Order becomes disorder
Genesis becomes chaos
All is rearranged
Until order is
Reasserted

Father dreams
Late at night
Of the day
When shame ends and waiting
Stops

Late that day
Woman wakes
To find herself
Whole
