I wish things had turned out differently.
I wish I had all these stories to tell my friends
about how when I was little,
you and I did this—
or you and I went here
or there,
or how we did everything together.
I wish you were here
to terrify all the new boys that come and go in my life.
My childhood I spent tormented
by the way you sat across the dinner table
and felt miles and miles away from me.
So you hadn’t been much of a dad,
but at least you had given me
one hell of an imagination.
Constantly envisioning
what life would be like
without a mother that cried herself to sleep
or a father who knew how to show love to his family.
