just because he can’t be a pilot
doesn’t mean he won’t still fly
as boldly as any brushstroke
van gogh ever painted on canvas
and if he starts wearing chucks
with mismatched socks like grandpa
i’ll start doing the same under my levi’s
so don’t worry about passing those genes
from your father to your son
as his mother you get to teach him to see
the beauty in the world that he’s taking in
through all of his senses
and sight
that’s just one of them
