Dad

More and
more
our conversations
begin with

“you probably
already know this”
and
follow with him
telling me

something I don’t
know.

Perhaps he will
tell me a story
about the gravestone
shaped like
a tree
in Machpelah Cemetery

or he will have a
tidbit
a fact
a memory
related to a story
in
our hometown paper

and tomorrow
will be the first
time I remember
something I
didn’t know yesterday
