What is it
with dads that make
them hate their sons
so bad it makes
them chase vapors
of ghosts the sweet
elusive sons
reduced to
vehicles of
salvation lets
get didactic
Abraham
to Isaac
Absalom
to David
dancing through
the kingdom
all his heart
could not save him
even the
messiah
had a father
to forsake him.
