Poetry

Dad

Up early
instant coffee
cigarettes
to work
hard work
cigarettes, Winstons
home
dinner
cigarettes
Korean war vet
bit of TV
to bed by eight
repeat
weekends
to the
library and
the dump
sneaking a few Schlitz
on the trip
to avoid mom’s angry fits
listen to the race on AM
fall asleep on the couch

That was dad
