The desperate laugh of a man,
who's wide distant gaze reflects the need,
understanding that time is a lie
a crack in the grasp
held together man,
nailed together by hand,
splinter in cheap wood of a
house, apartment, loft,
a home, a hole, a shelter, a...
a similer glimmer of comprehension
your wife's basic and met needs,
your wife's basic and met wants,
your wife's eyes reflect the need for relief, and release, and understanding that time is not the liar,
your father was,
and his father too.
