DMC: "Conversations With My Teenage Boy" by Tricia Stohr-Hunt
CONVERSATIONS WITH MY TEENAGE BOY
What did you do in school today?
What’s wrong son?
How was the play?
Nothing to write home about.
Complaint on the second day of summer vacation—
There’s nothing to do!
While folding his underwear in the living room—
Is nothing sacred?!
Good luck with your audition.
Here goes nothing.
How did you rip another pair of jeans?
You’re making a lot of fuss about nothing.
How mad are you mom?
I have nothing to say.
