A BRIEF LETTER TO MY FATHER

A BRIEF LETTER TO MY FATHER -BlackPoet

Papa,
—the assemblage of grey hairs
that catnapped on the follicles of your head
heaped my memories with outlandish reflections;
that one day—
some strange palms will pat my
tender arms,
with threnodies dancing
—on their solacing tongues
If you flail your wings to the next world
who will patter to my ears
—those ramrodding whispers of yours
like the rumbling of a rock
or perchance should i loan you
my life span?
