a prayer's as good as bayonet on a day like this


the most terrifying sight
is the look in daddy's eyes, aged 6
when he was drunk or in a rage,
which was often. hiding in bed,
soundlessly weeping in the shed
ducking behind the German shepherd.
the shouting would eventually die
down, ending in sprawled out
snoring on the couch. sending
the dog ahead as a scout, he found
my plastic red coat soldiers had
suffered heavy casualties. carelessly
stepped on, heavily outnumbered in size,
decimated again at Rorke's Drift
those soldiers and I survived many
a war, and we have the battle
scars and glued on feet to prove it.
