To Sons And Daughters

I open a book and
a new life begins
as I turn the pages
my fingers crease
and soil the parchment
Can books read themselves?

I'm still trying to figure out how sex comes into this? (except the new life begins and sons and daughters part)
It reminded me of that very fine print, detailed, written for adults, medical book my mom gave me at 12 years old to read, so I would understand all about sex.

this started as something else but morphed into the influence parents can have on kids. I suppose it also depends a lot on the child. About the sex ed, today with the interent Im not sure how many parents have to have the conversation. I dont know since I dont have kids but I wonder about what parents do now
