[they slither, and they hiss
like talking serpents , as they pass
through those discarded streets]

his head’s a sanctuary of sounds,
where he would hear his father 
sing him to sleep

[they drift, and they hover
like cigarette smoke would
inside that shady space]

his heart’s an ocean, and 
women are like waves; reflecting, 
and refracting along the shoreline of his life

[if only I could stop the sky
from raining,

the sky,
from raining]

then, no night would be too long, 
but, well, he’s drunk and stoned 
and he’s traveling solo

[will someone sadder, 
please, tell him,

his skin’s a collage of 
despondency; a patchwork of 
a midday muse.

Psychoanalysis has begun,
unconscious conflict.
With resistance:
maternal deprivation.

(Separated at his birth,
for human psyche studies.
Examined in close proximity,
he’s IV-ed and laboratory tested.)

Emotionally deconstructed,
deprived from the start.
Evaluation process:

(A blanket of love,
he’ll continue to search.
A face of despair

Bleak comfortless studies
erasing nurturing memories.
Results progress:

(Psychologically underdeveloped
he yearns for a loving figure;
but an interpersonal relationship
diminished before his very eyes.)

Written in fourteen languages
the monograph is now complete.
Maternal deprivation:
