Best Poem of Matthew Roeser

I Am My Father's Son And Daughter

On the eve of your graduation 
We sat mirroring each other
Each lost 
Each found 

Sitting on cold steel warmed by hearts
A tailgate of remembrance
At dawns edge I dreamed a dream
Of before the great birth

A son who shone a sun
A woven life
As me but not 
Of me but not

You were across the room
At times I shouted to deaf ears
Other times it was you shouting
But always love waved

Always love thirsted
And always together we drank
Tonight we drink again
And tip cans ice cold to our lips

The lips that whispered
That ...

Read the full of I Am My Father's Son And Daughter


I feel out

among the summer fireflies
that no longer fly in Philly
or even care that they are no longer flying

in stone sole less shoes

[Hata Bildir]
