The Theory Of Puberty - A Poem. by WordSayer: 11:05pm On Mar 14, 2018
The Theory of Puberty

puberty is more than a word.
it is more than an escape of hormones,
more than heights and fat and flesh,
more than bleeding mounds and voices,
more than pictures of dance and hate,
more than girls hipping up in lingeries,
more than boys taking their first, hard breath
as men in jean trousers and cotton singlets.
puberty is a boy crawling into punctured
silence over tasteless salts and nightmares
puberty is a girl trying hard not to cry,
over mossless hills and arid portals.
puberty is prejudiced, the type that colours
entrants in the paint of passion or grief;
in the paint of luck or acceptance;
in the colour of butterflies or worms.

Pat Ashinze,

At puberty most boys desperately try to crawl into punctured mound of flesh.

What they forget is that, unless the pen.is dies young, it will surely eat the bearded meat.
