ten twenty thirty

today i have ten years distance
between now and the last time
you placed her in my way
when i sat on the edge of your
hospital bed and you held my hand
and wheezed out what passed
for your amends
and she heard you
and as you were shaking hands with death
she was shaking hands with truth
and she took her revenge through me
she was just one more unwise choice
you’d expect me to reconcile
but today i have ten years distance
between now and the last time
you placed her in my way
we can give it ten, twenty, thirty more
still it will never happen again
cause her truth remains wrapped
in your deceit, daddy
and i don’t need it anymore

ten twenty thirty
