Twisting stem in fingers

If death is the end

Then how do you live each day

Now you are just bones

I found salvation

down the back of the sofa.

My child’s place to hide.

I saw a young boy,

distraught, desperate, crying.

Once, I was that boy.

My honest remark

confirms the depth of my fall.

Your countenance cold.

“Only those who knew no love

could say such a thing,” you say.

a moment of stress

exasperation contained

though fierce expression aired

scars my memory

the memory of the watching stranger

Father’s Day for me

A coffin, long years buried

Three wonderful sons
