Daddy’s boy doesn’t want to hunt
or fish
or wish for the blunt and
crushing strength of manhood
like daddy does.

He doesn’t want guns, knives,
fire in his eyes, to take
lives for the sake of sport,
blood on his fingers
or death by his hand.

Daddy’s boy wants peace,
freedom for all
and laughter,
release from the steel image
of what a real man should be.

He wants friendship,
respect, poetry
to share photography,
the written work, music
and the love of a good book.

Daddy’s boy wants daddy’s love.
