There he is again
Bellowing my name, so loud, so clear,
Fuming in that way that rips the spine from my back.
 
What did I do now?
What does he want this time?
Why is he always so painfully angry?
 
No one else hears,
that timbre in his voice,
that crack of the whip, that fury.
 
I stir in my chair,
Finish another dusty bottle,
Counting the years since he’s passed.
