WHAT IF YOU HAD TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL?
(6/10/19)


mothers

they worry
about such things
as piss stains

shit streaks

in youthful
tighty whities

especially when
the potential
exposure
of a son
is never known
for certain

these thoughts
follow us

haunt us

as the
years
go by

even
approaching
60

not worried
about defiling
solid colored
boxers

but still
wanting to match
the outer
clothing

just in case
the Fashion Ambulance
must retrieve
me

since
no one else
has seen
my underwear
in years
