day six.


when your father left. 

-
your mother 
shacked up
with a milkman.

but somehow, that
didn't stop you from
growing up with holes
in your bones. 

her cardiologist boyfriend
never did much to mend
your fractured heart. 

the chef
couldn't fill
the hole 
in the pit
of your 
stomach.

the empty spaces
of your father's 
absence,
always void.

I like this, the idea that the different men were unable to fill different voids, despite their professions.

I love the idea that the different men were supposed to fill different voids, according to their professions.
