Fresh: To an unknown father by John Alwyine-Mosely

To an unknown father

If I let my voice flutter
away to play at bird song

If my eyes are thrown
to make the sky more blue

If I rip out bones and make
them dance

If my flesh and skin wrinkle
in the wind

+++ Will I find you
+++ in the poppy remains?
