Andrew Medoro Daddy Annotation You don’t do Anymore black shoe In the 30 years which I have traveled far For thirty years struggling to make my way Barely daring to live or sneeze Daddy I have had to forgive you You died before we could build our relationship You carried a heavy religious burden Stone faced and unprepared As large as a frisco seal Across the Atlantic Where it rains heavily Across the waters of Nauset I once prayed for your return Ach, du? You lived in a Polish town and spoke German Scraped flat by industry By War The town is not uncommon My Polish Father There are many towns I didn’t know where you were You lived in your roots We couldn’t talk My tongue unable to speak We were trapped Ich…Ich? I couldn’t talk
