Saturday book feature — I Wish My Father — Lesléa Newman

It Was

not a stroke
of genius
it was not

a stroke
of luck
it was

a stroke
of misfortune
that befell

my father
leaving him

at the foot
of the driveway
next to the garbage

all morning
to be picked up

by Lesléa Newman from I Wish My Father (Headmistress Press, 2021)

Cover artist: Carol Marine
