Fathers, Again

Awesome
male parent,
so the card half-says,
parental
legal
social,
though not in these words
moreover;

nor the
Institute of Fatherhood.

Connoisseur of
dad dressing, the
biology of epigenetics:

fathers don’t
mother
and are more
than money,
not on the cards
either.

Dad’s don’t always
do things with
apostrophes.

fathers are mothers
mothers are fathers

though maybe not at
http://www.prick’ssportinggoods.com
for razors
guns
hunting gear
old roll of the dice

And yellow dads,
though that might be
mellow,

no apostrophe,

dads make mistakes too.

And DadMusic
always the favourites.

Our secular trinity
still postulates difference,
and data-driven ideas
still fool themselves.

My small baseball gloves
were always for my hands
anyway.

On this day
it’s many things

noting the apostrophe.
