You Saw It All by Mary M. Carlisle

        (for Cassie)
 
the shrieking and pain
and later tantrums and tears
weeks where he would
eat almost nothing
 
bizarre behaviors 
pacing with whispers
hammering stakes into ant hills
grabbing for humming birds
 
always afraid
your beautiful son
would run away
to where no one would care
 
in the end
he could hide nothing
from you
but himself
