Two Words

Two words
pulled from lips as though


observing from a place that was other
where I’d run to
and ducked for cover
Flew from my unconscious mouth
shaped so like my mother’s

In a voice
of knowing without knowing

Like I was six again
with night-tears
scalped knee
bike wheel still spinning
Two words now like a stranger’s memory

– Oh that it would be!

Two words a knew of sound
carried with your leaving
one I still can’t accept a reality
a signal that she…

Two words: “Get Daddy!”
