Daddy Issues: Duet With My Father: Duty

Duty

I watched the towers fall
from Germany, fresh
out of my reserve sergeant’s
uniform & dressed

in civilian clothes.
Still, we pulled
staff watch duty
in a barred, brick nighttime basement
scanning small screens
for voices of reason.

You weren’t in touch at the time.
