Forgiving Our Fathers

By Dick Lourie - 07/15/2000

Maybe in a dream;He's in your power
You twist his arm But you're not sure it was
He that stole your money you feel calmer
And you decide to let him go free

Or he's the one (as in a dream of mine)
I must pull from the water but I never
Knew it or wouldn't have done it until
I saw the street-theatre play so close up
I was moved to action I've never before taken

Maybe for leaving us too often or
Forever when we were little maybe
For scaring us with unexpected rage
Or making us nervous because there seemed
Never to be any rage there at all

For marrying or not marrying our mothers
For divorcing or not divorcing our mothers
And shall we forgive them for their excesses
Of warmth or coldness shall we forgive them

For pushing or leaning for shutting doors
For speaking only through layers of cloth
Or never speaking or never being silent

In our age or theirs or in their deaths
Saying it to them or not saying it
If we forgive our fathers what is left?
