Sextuple Dad
larrylark

Nowadays I see my dad
 1
in more than triplicate,
 2
in fact duplicated several times.
 3
Sat in a line or bent over,
 4
walking slowly, frame propping up
 5
his slender hopes among others the same.
 6
A band of brothers, as always deranged.
 7
 
 
I speak. “Looks like rain.”
 8
His gaze is straight ahead.
 9
“Son, it don’t rain but it pours.”
 10
He says to the ward orderly.
