geordie

for my father, geordie dodds
1920-2004 (August 9th)

you live on in my watering left eye
the down-turned corners of the mouth
sense of humour termed wicked by some
chin and cheek cupped in the right palm

immortality is simply a reflection
a passing-on of essence
some good bits came from you
the bad blew in from who knows where
