"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me."
Hunter S. Thompson

Father's Day

Every Father
fucked up.
'Every Father..
you know it..
he knows it.
He changed your life;
you changed his.
good bad memorialized,
memorized, rehearsed,
and re-told
the justifiable tale
of that 'You'..
you became..
in spite-of,
or, because of,
'old fuck'.

don't 'love' him
because of "Him"
love him because
of You.
