Anatomy Lesson

Toes
as pink as the eraser
on your Ticonderoga pencil.
Eyes
the size of saucers
or so they seem against the
Face
round and jolly as can be
with extra chins (just in case).
Hands
finding blankets, hair, lapels,
and ducting them all to his
Mouth
bearing a look of surprise
because the world is new
and grand,
especially when you are only,
after all,
three months into it.
