The Complaint of Toys

Adults have their own ‘toys’ for sale.

What an abominable meaning they
have imparted to us,
stretching our limbs to suit their lusts,

just as the word ‘baby’
feels uncomfortable
when some men call
a lady a ‘baby’.
Did they discern in her ‘baby-ness’
or delight for nights?

We wonder how long we would be
in demand
for kids,
since childhood is contracting:

a 10-year old ‘adult’
will be buying a toy
for his girl-friend’s baby.
