Father often used words
instead of fists; he shook
the air with his words

his words blew in like
falling rafters, splinters
were everywhere

What words we chose to bear
he gave without warning,
a camera flash was not
quicker

the emptiness, the ritual:
his words were always
the same, synonyms
were not needed until
his wind lost its tongue
and it was time to love
