A Child, 'Unkept, 'Precocious, - Poem by James McLain

Bored and even then quite small, come nearer to thee, 'us, them.
I tuned out the Latin, 'mumbled jumbo to them, me being wee
and it was a revelation only then,
Precocious a boy, 'I articulated to the priest, that the girls
were caught in the same artistic light as me.
Afterwords there always was an eye, 'kept on me.
