Poetry: Boy gone wild by Ramesh Dohan

Boy gone wild

by Ramesh Dohan

Once I found him in a far field

Small with wild legs, the boy stole my eyes
The day he was found
Up to his ankles in petals
Asleep on the roof when the rain came
Dirty haired boy,
I watch him wrestle
My Shadows
One fist ready for me
Leave him a blanket
Leave him alone
