she stood there like empire
heels dug into gravel
smooth legs blazing out of teal blue
bun on her head tighter than a fist
she calls out to him, “Daddy.”
she can’t wait another second
he stands…leans, bloated in wealth
impotent with drink
it’s a shame she’s standing there
a shame she can’t wait
a shame someone’s watching this
through the blinds
