Poetry Friday – For Tommy

For Tommy (and mommies)

to tommy who:
eats chocolate cookies and lamb chops
climbs stairs and cries when i change his diaper
lets me hold him only on his schedule
defined my nature
and gave me a name name (mommy)
which supersedes all others
controls my life
and makes me glad
that he does

From: Love Poems by Nikki Giovanni
