James Hyuntay Stuber at Three Months

Face changes weekly,
more movement,
auto-didactic Tae Kwon Do
develops into one-finger conducting
as three-month old Hyuntay
gathers personality parts.

He plays, cooing and screaming,
surrounded by nourishment,
mother, grandmother, father,
then sister, cousin, aunt
welcome him to a world
in need of his charm.

Old school already,
he scowls at bad smells,
smiles when satisfied,
answers lullabies dove-style.
Frustrated by lack of vocabulary,
Hyuntay listens to colliding languages.

He aches to crawl,
points to Oma when carried away,
sleeps in car seat, stroller, bed and crib,
but mostly cuddled, he hates to sit.
Walk him, drive him, keep him moving
or risk sour faces, cries of wanderlust.
