MEMORIES OF MY FATHER an iPoem

Stiff curled collars back from the laundry,

a carapace tight around the neck, ready for the upright day

held in place by a small gold stud

you found hard to secure

so needed the child me with my nimble fingers,

and our morning faces gaze back at us from the mirror,

another minor triumph.
