Just Like My Father


Sunday morning
Yesterday’s cigars smelt like him
Bold
Specific in their smell

Just like my father

Always hyper
Sometimes amusing
Never genuine

Just like my father

His drinking
Is no dilemma
What leaves me queasy
Is drunk sincerity

Just like my father

Stumbling in the house
Reeking of cheap brandy
At 5 in the morning

Just like my father

With sayings
Not possibly, farther
From the truth

Just like my father

Leaving me
Alone
Afraid
and only

as innocent
as i hoped
i could have been

Just like my father

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
