Happy Birthday Song

The chocolate cake
was particularly good

this year, and the frosting
tasted of opulence
and decadence,

like the crisp sheen
of shining dollar bills

that father made—
‘though some say stole—

after he was able
to buy the business
down the street
for a song.

To Alice

Your father never forgot
your mother, the pain
was just so great that he
had to bury the kryptonite

in a steel tunneled chamber
to continue the journey

that you would have wanted
for him, for you loved him more.
