Genetics

I never knew my father,
he beat my mother and
left
when I was 6 months old
I don't even know what he looks like.
He could walk into the room
right now
and I'd have no idea
that he was partly responsible
(in the loosest sense
of the word)
for my existence.
He hasn't spoken to me since
and he probably never will.
but my
dad
is an extremely kind man
who would give you the shirt
off of his back.
he would give his
life
for those that he
loves,
whatever that means.
he has a temper
that's set off by trivial things,
recalcitrant nails
and disobedient things
that he tries to fix
bring curses and rage.
I think it's because
he is haunted
by demons from his youth.

but he
is still
a decent man
though now sober
and a bit of a
recluse

My mother is a strange woman,
hypocritical,
and also has a short temper,
but full of love
for all her children

She is very strong,
too strong,
I think that sometimes
it seems that she
consumes
herself
violently
with her past
but will not admit it.
she is not terribly fond
of very many
people

she has glued herself
together
with pieces of the present
and reluctant
shards
of my father,
drowning me
in the chaos
of her repair

They are both frozen
as people
unable to change
anymore

I guess in their own ways,
they're both still
young
at
heart.
