There Was No Escaping His Father’s Words

The Seeker's Dungeon

They sat
across the table
from each other.
His father
had that,
‘I don’t want to smile
but
what can I say,
I expected as much

and
here you are
just like we sat
when you were a kid
and cared
little
for what
I said
or did,’
look on his face.
As they stared
each other down
he realized that
it
was
just
one
moment
of irritation
that had brought them
back together.

He had been trying
not to lose
focus
as a deluge of thoughts
was disrupting
his normally peaceful
meditation,
but
love’s weary feet
were trampling all over
his mental exaltation.
In that moment
he realized
the truth of his father’s
words,
nearly 20 years ago,
that his son
just moved
from fad to fad
with no anchor
for his wretched soul.
There had been his
break dance craze
then
the serious
jazz musician phase.
Can’t forget
