timmy, timmy, timmy, timmy, timmy,

Half of me says quit teasing me with the beauty of your poems.

Every thought/phrase of this resonates.

You capture a guy like my guy/dad.

The other half says bathe/drown it all over me with the thunder of Niagara Falls.

You schmuck! I beg you, keep doing this to me!

best,

Mana: 
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
