So Much to Prove

There’s no need to confess all—
no matter that a single confession
has been known
 to clear the sinus

I have always felt
that I have much
to prove

and here,
seeking the value of confession,
I confess
that I have proved

so very little
to my father
and to the heart
breaking in my chest

not my own,
but his,
Dad’s heart,
and he and I

are flooded with the blood
of the sons
of the sons
of the sons

of the sons
it is here
after the flood

I will rebuild
