Tough Stuff

tough stuff

by Sara Marie Allen

tough stuff.
     tell my child,
          chin up,
               it’s a cruel world,
                    don’t care what they say.
I see his skin, tender
     like a molted spider’s,
          harden in the elements.
and over time,
     impervious to touch.
