my father told me

the importance

 

of family

 

and his alcoholic parents

that poured boiling water

on him

for discipline

 

and his brother

the drunk priest

that made the cover of Life magazine

and married the nun

with no sweat glands

 

and his other brother

the drunk midget

whos wife

left him

to enjoy her last years

with black lung

and the woman

that helped her realize

she was a lesbian

 

my father told me

the importance

 

of family

 

while my mother fucked

my tennis instructor

and the other men

she told me were my uncles

but who only came to visit

when my father was at work

 

my father told me

blood

is thicker

than water

 

but

so is urine

snot

and semen
