ashes

By | 1 April 2019

if
I had
my father’s
ashes
I could
throw them
in
the toilet

take
a huge
dump
to square
things off

the water
from the bowl
would hit
my ass
and
I would
be
so revolted
to have him
touch
me
again
I’d
jump
in the shower
to scrub
myself
clean

run
an icy
bath

stick
my head
all the way
under

deep sea diver
explorer
of memory

never
did learn
how to swim
