F

F” poses a problem for me;
it stands for “Father”
but because I had a
tragicodramatic
relationship with him
an anagram also comes
into play:
“there is no ‘he’ in FART”
and of course,
that is pretty profound
psychologically,
since I contain
both of those concepts
being a Father and
like everyone,
in the arts
“he who ‘F‘. . . .”

But there is a switch
ending to this verse:
just when things
couldn’t get worse,
Flora came
and with her art,
redeemed the “F
and stole my he.art.
