three stories of me (and he)

 
      
       
(i)        
my small feet atop his        
teaching me to dance;        
and finer things,      
like Elvis's voice        
and that love, beaming down        
       
       
       
(ii)      
"mud monster"      
in the blackened basement;        
me, clinging to his leg      
as we hunted for my sisters—      
"DADDY !?!!"        
                    ..i peed.      
       
       
       
(iii)      
you couldn't really talk        
confused and afraid   
i sat and sang        
it was just you and i    
       
..... until the end.

Three of my most loving, moving (and brutal) memories of my dad and I. He's wearing MY Mickey Mouse hat that I had just received from Santa Claus on Christmas morning, in'78 I think. He'd probably just got done working 80 hours and putting together all of our Christmas toys , sleeping about 2 hours, only to have us wake him up at 5 in the morning because Santa had visited... lol. He looks pretty good for being utterly exhausted.. lmao

I just fucking miss him and the ache is a forever reminder...
