Folk Tales

from Man of the House by Peter Squires



collected all the folk tales
put them in a blender
spread them across a sheet pan
shaped like america
to see what it would render

some parts were revolting
some were inspirational
some were terrifying
because facing expiration
can feel confrontational

the overall result was
nothing if not memorable
but despite all its pages
the whole collection
was tragically ephemeral

you were born to be remembered
locally and worldly
your tale was a fine one
quite superior
except it ended early


from Man of the House, released March 1, 2015
