Ready

How do you know
if you’re ready
for me?
Beyond desire
beyond growth
you must be
able to be
both husband and
father
in an instant.
They recognized you
too, did
you know that?
Felt the pain of
abandonment
when you exiled
them, and me,
and your start
with them, and me,
must be
an apology first,
as a good
father,
as a good
husband,
as a good man
does.
