WE ARE DIFFERENT BUT ARE WE EQUAL? 

You have shaped me. I am brash to combat your meekness. Your strength is so quiet  I sometimes discredit its perseverance. Mine is hot and loud. But there are times the flames  can dwindle so low I’m not even sure they’re even there. Even so, I’ve made sure your silence  will never be in my library of responses.

UNLEASHED TONGUE 

I have no qualms about speaking up when your politeness squeezes your throat. I will make your voice heard to those dressing you up with their own ideals. I may approach a subject as delicate as a bull charging red but I am on your side even if I do not share your finesse.

MOTHER KNOWS BEST

She’ll never know the young woman  she could have been if she didn’t  grow up under your hawk eye criticism. You talk about her big Italian nose and her spilled out thighs  as if that nose didn’t come from you and your mother. As if her first breathe wasn’t between yours.

 THE DUST FLIES IN OKLAHOMA

You come around long enough  just to let him down before your tires start spinning again. After the rubber burning smoke is gone you still leave him standing here alone again. The same tail lights have daunted his dreams Since he was just 5. He gave up hope long ago  that you would ever be any father of his.

You give the love you weren’t shown

You’re obnoxious  Shouting for the attention Your momma never gave you growing up. You are not your sisters. Parenting is not a one size fits all. You were sensitive and destructive. So you give out the love you never got because you never want your love  to be questioned like your 12 year old thoughts

The Family You Found

You weren’t close to family by blood but you found brothers young who still surround you to this day.   You pledged to brotherhood in college and choose a career where you stand in a line full of brothers in blue.   You’re the most resourceful  and willful man I know.  You could let me be your family too.

Things I Dream For

I imagine myself at a table with your friends. Where you’ve finally let me in to be approved by the family built with time and loyalty.    -Oct 2019
