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


is thicker

than water



so is urine


and semen
