Things to tell my Dad

(If he was here).
  1. I miss you.
  2. I smell gasoline and remember you.
  3. My mom tells me I look like you when I'm angry.
  4. One of my poems is being published.
  5. I think I see you in public.
  6. I get sad when I think about you.
  7. I would give anything to eat ice cream and watch a movie with you right now.
  8. I miss your snore.
  9. I'm sorry for stepping on your bare feet with my cleats.
  10. I hope you still drag your fingers over my name you tattooed on your body when my little fingers curled around your thumb.
  11. I'm 3 months clean.
  12. I've heard that my siblings look like me. Do they remind you of your first love?
