Father’s Day, 2008

are you god?
because you are everywhere.
i see you all the time:
puddles and mirrors,
picnic tables
and empty parking lots.

half-empty beer cans
breathe your name down my neck;
hallmark made a day for you.

you’re probably still washing yourself
with my power ranger soap.

Sorry, Ninja Turtles all the way.
My brother liked Power Rangers and well... We didn't get along as youngens. I still liked it though. I just couldn't admit it.

There's something Mary

There's something Mary Oliver-y in that, it's not rhythm nor rhyme (or lack of)... perhaps it's something because of an anapaest I found familiar. I like it a lot -whatever reminds me of Mary Oliver must be good.
