My Father

Had a heart attack
One night when I
Was 16. I ran bare foot
Across The street to get
Our doctor neighbor
I can still feel the gravel
It was too late, an ambulance
Came and took his body.
For one year Mama left
His work clothes on the hook
Where he hung them.
Sometimes I’d go into
Their closet and hug
His clothes, breath
His scent and cry.
