George Hammons


And I am momentarily
That no hands so fine
Ever braced me
Against the world
No voice so kind
Ever advised me
On how to be a man
I see his eyes
Just a bit chagrined
She teases him 
And then sneaks
In for a hug
Quick as a cat 
And twice as smug
His smile
Is her reward
And so again
She calls him 
“Mi amor.”

George Hammons studied creative writing, with a focus on poetry, at California State University, San Bernardino. He is the author of the chapbook, Hungry To Bed from Arroyo Seco Press and Witness: Selected Poems from Picture Show Press.
