as tough as I was
I crumbled
on the ICU floor
as much as he loomed
so large and unforgiving
only laid out,
looking bad except for his dignity
which is mostly what I remember
about him
on that day,
this man who couldn’t give
me what he never got himself
he looked like an eagle
lying there
he would’ve liked that
a bird in mid-flight
the gray in his hair
like silver in his wings
his broad face and broke Irish nose
his proud jaw set
flying up into the greatest sky
against the wind.
