Final Reckoning (Day 591)


Your father is dying.

Maybe 
it’s time (at last)

     to get over your-self 
         
and that 
     privileged childhood

you suffered
            
     through   with all its
     First-World problems.

Maybe 
it’s time (at last)

     to dance 
     with joy 
     and gratitude 
           for all 
           those things that made 

your life   
your life  
      
for all 
He made 

     damn sure 
     you’d never 
     
     never have.
