    Extended Family

    Yet like grandfather
    I bathe before the village crow

    the dry chlorine water
    my only Ganges

    the naked Chicago bulb
    a cousin of the Vedic sun

    slap soap on my back
    like father

    and think
    in proverbs

    like me
    I wipe myself dry

    with an unwashed
    Sears turkish towel

    like mother
    I hear faint morning song

    (though here it sounds
    Japanese)

    and three clear strings
    nextdoor

    through kitchen
    clatter

    like my little daughter
    I play shy

    hand over crotch
    my body not yet full

    of thoughts novels
    and children

    I hold my peepee
    like my little son

    play garden hose
    in and out
    the bathtub

    like my grandson
    I look up

    unborn
    at myself

    like my great
    great-grandson

    I am not yet
    may never be

    my future
    dependent

    on several
    people

    yet
    to come read more »

    Tough Streets Of Chicago

    Tough streets of Chicago, you made me who I am.
