Mr. Man's Man
written by: Sergio A. Ortiz
One day I'll know you’re not eternal
and that you don't exhale lavender,
that your sweat isn't honey. I'll learn
your hands don't shape my world,
your laughter doesn’t own my hours.
I'll undergo the loneliness of stars,
the impotence of the sea before the moon.
That’ll be the day my sunsets end.
