poem

Daddy wanted beer bad
Mom parked in the wrong parking lot
On purpose
Daddy said he scrapped his balls on the guard rail
Daddy said it was worth it
And that the Fourth of July is for only
If you are alive

Little Guy

I tell Gavin I have much to show him. I pick him up and tell him I’ll show him the world. I walk him out of his room and down the hallway into the kitchen, then the living room. I open the sliding glass door. I step onto the deck.  I tell Gavin, ‘This is the beginning of the entire world.’

It's on the tip of his tongue.  His question about the world.
It’s on the tip of his tongue. His question about the world.

I answered his question.  He was pleased. Cheers.
I answered his question. He was pleased. Cheers.

He’s bright and happy. No more fever and all is well.
