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

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,
