Day 17

   
I wanted my Daddy
to tell me
everything was alright
 
Rather than telling me
how to do
everything right

Ah -- the distinction. :)

The distinction I most strongly recall learning from my father was the difference between pile and stack. :D :D

4/17 poem

End Game

Remember,
once you were good
for nothing—

now every day seems
to be all of them.

How Sarah Palin Ruined the Wink

She straddled a balloon perched on an anvil
or a flying goose– tracking from the sky,
the edges of everything ran down the page.

Her skirt was red, her lips were warm:
your kisses are wasted on me, she said–
the edges of everything ran down the page.

Far from apples, or planets or nodding heads,
a duck falls, a dog runs, a small general
in a red helmet watches from a distance: snow

or sleet dissolves whatever lucidity
there might have been – life used to make sense.
