RKS Poetry: 55 Years of Unhappy Father’s Days

55 years of vacant father’s days

55 years of no father to celebrate a special day with
never even a chance to say good-bye at a funeral
as that unhealthy event was the thought of many in 1964
not thinking grief could find any door
the end result being numbness and an inability to process
so grief leaks out piecemeal
perhaps solace should be found in a new drill set
BBQ
bottle of single malt
or a lawnmower
Merry Christmas Dad
