father is a person too
an oedipus, next
yes, a vessel or a vehicle
however you want to put it, treacle
if the pressure only builds to break
then why build it the first place?
the dizziness is morning wine
carelessly spilled on a copy of time
knit one, pearl one, check your phone
do you go to bed in your clothes
or go home alone?
getting the lived in look?
two pigsty eyes
and your father’s cheekbones
survive the night
but is tepid tea and a housemate score
sufficient reward for all I have taught?
on the flat
the blade and the cap
a surrogate heart
an old man
i wish you were here, dad
i wish i’d been there then
