Growing Up

the world’s record
largest little boy
grew so tall
by not growing up

everything focused
inward inward
one big inhale
one bag of wind

all nutrition
sucked from the air
only the -isms left
to spill and spew

such style
hair to nest in
but none dared
nestle close

desire ran hot
so much to win
fueled by fire
of firing

only knowing
how to use up
kept him
from growing up
