father: from my upcoming collection, 'the falling, the becoming'

 

father

you soft thing,


you listen for the gentle beating of a

pair of ivory wings,

thinking that he never truly

left.


of course he didn’t.

he’s been with you all along, 

fluttering by,


your butterfly.


you have believed softer

things.



a poem from my upcoming collection, 'the falling, the becoming', to be published mid-march.
