2224: Vater und Tochter

That discomfort between
vater und tochter – weigh
on an ageing expectation
upon fixed views – Here I
fail – We flick a language
to drag out an approval in
tongue-tied translation – I
flail with my living parent –
my fathering was not gut –
There I eye across a street
of greasy cobbles – worn –
a family bicker ‘bout ways
to – I then smugly settle in
my tourist suite [of rooms
with fabulous views] – At a
given age we will revert to
being that kid without any
clue as to how – for now I’ll
belabour in my position as
head of my family – retired
