Dwight

Dad was beer
Dwight was whiskey
A full fifth for verdict
You stole my smokes
An adult punch
Innocent fifteen

Dad was gone the day
He crushed the can
Cut some holes
Ashes to ashes
Crack in our living room
Bought on Bunce Road

Dad didn't cry
When he told me
You drowned
And left us
Truckless

The Bull

I wake up and can see my breath in my room
The Bull is empty, she's hungry

I grab the can burning my fingers
in the snow spit rain
A long walk down Raeford road
To fetch the food
Dad only had five bucks
So I don't have to stop
To switch hands

Tall thin crisscrossed legs
Make for a wobbly mount
I balance on the cold, wet, rusty saddle
And open her lock
So the boys on Bunce don't take no food

I think about heat as she drinks
Hoping I can feed her again later
So my nose don't freeze

Dad #1

I woke up to the alarm
And let you sleep
When I found you
On the linoleum in the kitchen
Where you landed
With a beer in your hand
Only spilling a few drops
Of blood upon impact

Have a good day at school Son

Groceries

You put me on a Greyhound bus
and shipped me to my dad's
Whom I had just met that summer

Passed me off to a man
You hadn't seen since he knocked you up
Fifteen years before
Cause I was too much to deal with
On top of a work and school

I always wanted a Dad growing up
Until I got the one I got
A drug addicted alcoholic
Who couldn't hold a job

But I have to thank you
For the $100 check you sent
For my 16th birthday
I bought what most kid's my age would have
Groceries

Oh man what a sad and lonely emotions of smart kid I've found in your poetry.
It makes me wanting to hug the boy and to say that everything will be fine.
Thanks for sharing these peculiar memories with all of us.
