Idolized Dad

Postcards from abroad; leave me plummeting –
Messages from somewhere – ‘having a great time, glad you are not here.’
Updates, from nowhere, about nothing.
Birthdays ignored.
Holidays, what are those?
Did he ever care, for me?
From abroad or anywhere?
Would he identify my blood –
Or wait for the autopsy?
My impressions neglected;
By my idolized Dad.

-L.J. Lenehan-
