time passes so slowly
when you are trying to live up to
a dead icon
i can only pretend to be her tombstone
of marble
which is reflected
like neon lights off
of bud-lite
to my father
who could not stand to look in
my eyes
on nights where he had
one to many
i visit mom 2 times a year
mothers day
and april fool's day
she died on april fool's day
i guess the joke's on me
i look like her frozen
coffin face
