03/12/22- 1971 Coins

I never imagined finding coins

from 1971

would consume so much

of my father’s waking time.

He has to find them.

Maybe a dime,

maybe a quarter,

a nickel,

a wheat penny.

1971 was the year Michael Strahan was born

and my father wants

so desperately to send these coins to him.

I don’t ask why anymore

because it only upsets him.

Instead, I bring bags of coins to his table

and watch as he joyfully looks at each one

hopeful and intent.
