Single Dad


it’s way too long
can’t remem’br wen i saw u
but heard u r a single dad.
seems no one seez u much.
gess u must have no time
and I gess u don’t hav
yur old set of wheels.

i hear Sheela saw u on a bus
by sub-sdiz-d daycare
one ice cold day last week.

She sez you had both boys
each with a Buzz Lightyear toy
wings out, ready to fly.

She sez u looked real happy
and said the kids looked happy 2.
cool! u’d be a great dad.
i always knew it.

  1. I really loved this .. . It even made me cry. Thanks for writing and sharing!

    • Thanks so much, Debbie…The Brown Paper Bag collection of prose is based on everyday encounters and inspired by people I meet on an inner city bus route I take to work.

  2. It’s not just single moms anymore. There’s a whole lot of men standing in the gap for their kids these days. Thanks for bringing that fact to light here!
