the happy birthday report card

so needy and emotionally demanding
thinks physically commanding

so vulnerable and so insecure
of his genius yet so sure

says he is contented
but still wants more

is that what I saw today
when my mirror looked my way

and all it had to say
happy birthday brother happy birthday

years gone by and years to go on still
who knows whom we will fall in love until

we stop falling and get buried in the ground
happy birthday kid hush don’t make that sound
