Poem: The thing is, you see 

god has big eyes &
he puts them in the mouths
of little children &
you can do what you will
with a child, but
one way or
another
what you will
will come back to speak
to you
when you are old
when your hands are
arthritic
when your knees buckle
when your mind is
growing thin, (oh yes)
that tiny voice
will speak &
speak &
speak
