between fatherhood

between fatherhood
and dadhood
are lines drawn, erased,
redrawn, dashed, dotted,

crossed, bolded, retraced – never
to get right, nor to get even

we draw lines

we draw lines
in the dark,
identifying
parts that go
together, measuring
breaths, repositioning
wishes. i come
across the definition
of us by the first
sign of light, but

curtains admit
nothing is so steady

you went to the post
office on tuesday to
estimate the number of
stamps it would take
to bring out all the
crazies. waiting in
a nine yard line, you
weighed the clever
dose of extra
patience injected
into the service system
since the one-penny-
increase went into
effect. you calculated
the exact difference
between the volume
coming from the
confusion and that of
the faithful postman.
the line squirmed, and
you stepped up, tongue
ready, to receive
your holy
one-cent communion
