What Mom Asked For

dad '65
This is the boy
From Topeka
State hospital
Released to life,
A gyrating
Elvis and a rebel
James Dean.

This is the girl
With green
Bedroom eyes;
She’s a brazen Liz Taylor,
Moving her mouth,
Saying come on over
And ride my horses.

mom '65

Wild wobbly things.
The girl who loves
Horses and
The boy who can
Never accept,
Fifty years thus,
A rein.
