GOOD DISCIPLINE

not having your studio for months
boundaries there if wanted
thoughts of my father keep
rolling in
resting deep in my brain
in the midst of cutting and pasting
I love him now
in his absence,
intensely

like the collages
I’ve created
the way he would laugh
hold me way up
tall
in the back yard
so I could climb the magnolia
too sweet for his life

I understand now
and write
cutting, pasting
loving his snoring
