The Proper Tools

I would never invite the dentist
to perform dentistry
with a concrete jackhammer.
Nor expect a surgeon the perfect incision
with a bricklayers trowel.
How could I ever expect a boy
to gaze a strip of the universe’s
starry wonder through a Styrofoam cup?
If I didn’t have a heart full of poetry,
a spirit full of wisdom,
a head full of delightful thoughts,
and a being full of boyhood.
I wouldn’t have the proper tools
needed for loving you.
