In a small box in the closet
where I keep certain treasures
memories of my past

there is a tiny news clipping
an obituary
four lines long

four lines
tell the story
of a man
aged fifty one

his name.
survived by two daughters.
wife. sister. three granddaughters.
he will be missed

four lines.
my father.
he was so much bigger than that
to me.
