hallowed be your name

Look, Daddy. I’ve
drawn you a picture, a picture
of you. Isn’t it
awesome? Your cute nose
slid away when I got
distracted (my pen slipped) but
otherwise I did
a good job don’t you think
Daddy? I think
I draw almost as well as you
or even better (except the nose
but that’s all right)—
I got the eyes just right,
the bluegreen, the mouth,
chin, neck, ear-
lobes. I like the way
I did that mole,
that wrinkle there,
there’s glory! on my page!
Daddy,
can I get a twenty?
Michael’s is having a frame sale—
Thanks.
