Epoxy Holds the World Together
Early, during the denial of dawn,
Dreams overlap my day’s to-do list
And I remember you.
I think of the projects ahead and
Wish I could ask,
How would you?
I can learn from
But you were
My favorite teacher –
My how-to manual:
How to make and fly a kite.
How to ice skate on a pond.
How to fish.
How to fix broken things.
How to make old things new.
How to build a world with words,
And hold it together with epoxy.
Your lessons epoxied us.
Now you are gone.
In the pre-dawn, I wonder
What are your current projects?
Are you building
Whatever it is, I know there will be epoxy.

I can’t log in to the world press place to comment so I’ll bypass all that.
As soon as I saw the word Epoxy, I knew there had to be at least a small thought about Dad. After all, that was his go-to for everything. He really prided himself on fixing things. . . he and his buddy, Epoxy.

Yeah, he made sure we knew epoxy could fix most anything.
