For His Granddaughters

“occasionally el ocho patas
suffers from lucidity…”

Being a man
I know how men can be

that I may not be around
when you might need

advice from an old man:
girls, the vices of men

can derail your life
their jealousies will stunt your growth

keep your minds clear
don’t let their fog blind you

don’t let their displeasure
of your independent souls stop you

avoid their road blocks
avoid their false encouragement

keep going the way
your heart wants you to go

may you have great wonderful lives
which only you can make come true
