each time you pull

for dad

each time you pull
out a special tool
for fixing the things
that break, you teach
us how to hold
the problem in
our hands, engage
in solutions, find
the edges of
every rule.
equipped with
a lifetime of
tools, we still
find your love
immeasurable

my father’s hands

my father’s hands
defy the rules of
logic, physics,
and the lifetime
of retiring
machine parts.
as good as
new
is just a
phrase rattling,
clanking, echoed
in other households.
in ours, silence
speaks steadfast
