Boys will Be

The boys fight over the television

Idiot box, Cartoons! Cartoons!

Flying Robot Ninja Samurai vs. Magical Power High School

Mother placates with bowls of cheap frosting,

Says:

“Leave me alone for this moment and the one after this”

The boys devour bowls of sweet pink paste.

Then resume slapping, punching, biting, clawing,

which channel will be chosen.

They break the bowls into shards.

Stab!

 sharp edge of ceramic between the ribs.

Mother calls for quiet

“this moment and the one after this”

One boy bleeds to death on the beige carpet.

 Alpha boy watches

What The Hell He Wants.
