Travelers Welcome

He's in the garden
pulling wings off butterflies.
crushing bugs,
frightening tiny frogs.
Four years of age
and he learns as much by cruelty
as by wonder.

Will he someday bruise a woman
to test love's limits?
Will he stomp down on others
to reach a higher rung?

It's just a stage kids go through,
says Joe.
Approaching likeness,
a father find his tongue.
