6. Vacant Homes

Inspired by:



Father, I’m home.
Where have you been, Dad?
How have you been, Dad?

It’s alright, you don’t have to play Father with me today.
Let’s just talk man to man.
You no longer need to ashamed.
Here’s a fresh menthol cigarette to take the edge
Let’s just talk.

In our vacant home, Dad,
Let’s grab a couple of chairs
And just talk.

I know about the women,
I know about the drugs,
I know about the pain
And I know it’ll take more than just my hugs.
