POEM: dead dad

dead dad
for Arthur Lee Borders

YouTube told me my dad died
two years after the fact
a video, an email response &
I’m down a parent

the few people I’ve told
send their condolences
but I did my mourning
years ago

his first disappearance
has kept me sober
since I was old enough
to know about drinking

his second exit
is a period
to a sentence
already completed

my favorite poem
is the many ways people
pronounce the word “poem”

odd: daytime Velvets
songs about the real tough drugs
in the church office

a little poem

this (too/two) shall pass
but for some reason
you never do

kitchen chats go deep
learning how to love ourselves
until the dog barks

haiku: 13 July 2021

awake to the rain
the van feels like a cocoon
in which I’ve transformed
