father easing in

Sean Hackney


frazzled from the journey home: disregarding the field he had trampled through gazing
without delay from the lights illuminating
the shrub in the bend surrounded by: kettle blue grass dented from the path leaves molded
from depression consuming
his feelings of the moment, laughing inside jinxed from childhood imaginings of purity in
nature an end to those wishes today:
just give him his Annie Hall; no more is the city still the carbon copy it was before? he
left? Similar air blows reducing private doubt held of him passionately pursuing radiance
deciding to disregard his path toward anhedonia
