Oedipus waits

we sat for a while

while

I figured out

my daddy issues

how I felt about the old man

& like any of my emotions

these were complicated

understanding

the man had tried

yet failed in my eyes

as much surely

he had his concerns

about who I’d become

our generations

staring across the great divide

just how do you force

a man to talk who won’t?

the more you push

the more he recedes

there we were

seeing yet not seeing

misunderstanding

our reasons to communicate
