Digging Deeper

Dear Father,

I am deeply sorry
for arriving this afternoon
incomplete

I dressed and pulled my hair back
Over my shoulder
my bag holds my smile

Just in case it is needed

I am deeply sorry
for leaving parts of me
down a rabbit hole

Playing character parts

(If this be a consolation
You’ll need to take your seat

Each character
enters stage right
holding your hand)

I am deeply sorry
I’ve not burrowed
to where your parts
are hidden safely

I hope this is joy to your ears
Today, I found a picking tool

I’m tunnelling for you
Dad
Please don’t dig
in the opposite direction

Always
Your Daughter
