Bring Me The Head Of The Drafting Department
 

part 1

           Human with a View                                    vol. 28



On the phone, dad disapproves,
mom in curlers and a white terrycloth.
The picture window view across the street
is a gas station owner's palace, paradise
with a chain link fence.

On the wall a blonde Jesus, or a cousin,
I was never told who. An avocado wall
with dark matching curtains only frustrates a lamp shade.

A vast mediocrity
for my disapproving dad to be born into,
raised with huge antipathy by divorced parents,
no room red enough to warm his Aquarian coolness,
a vague future vision still shimmering on a deserted blue horizon.

At last, dad says, "real gone daddy, I like THAT idea!,
let's go with that one."

The house is quiet the rest of the day
except for the swish of dad's pens and pencils,
as he hunches over his drawing board in his home office,
happy as a clam - with no expression.
