  1. The boy complained,
    “Why is everyone just looking at him?
    He doesn’t do anything
    except cry and sleep.”
    “You forgot poop. He also poops,” his father said.
    “He’s new, that’s all.
    He’ll get more interesting,” his mother said.
    “Would you like to hold him?” his dad asked
    ignoring the small intake of breath from the bed.
    The slender shoulder shrugged.
    The boy sat back in the vinyl chair
    and accepted the bundle from the nurse.
    A yawn and a tiny arm escaped the blanket.
    “I wanted a dog. But I guess you’ll do.”

  2. Like the librarian
    in a dowdy dress
    and horn-rimmed glasses
    things that look dull
    can be quite exciting,
    once you peel
    away her harsh
    exterior.
