By KG Newman
For breakfast I smooch my newborn
seventeen times. Lunch is a hug
with my son. For pre-dinner
I take my daughter to coffee,
hold my coffee. I’m more
of a water guy. Mix it
with the formula. Power the dam
that powers our house, where
I walk through on quiet afternoons,
just before school’s out, before
daycare expires forever, turning on
lights in all the bedrooms.
