My mother never forgave my father
for killing himself,
especially at such an awkward time
and in a public park,
that spring
when I was waiting to be born.
She locked his name
in her deepest cabinet
and would not let him out,
though I could hear him thumping.
When I came down from the attic
with the pastel portrait in my hand
of a long-lipped stranger
with a brave moustache
and deep brown level eyes,
she ripped it into shreds
without a single word
and slapped me hard.
In my sixty-fourth year
I can feel my cheek
still burning.
β€’ The Portrait by Stanley Kunitz

"I saw my father weeping (a father who weeps is a gift to his son, but it disturbed me then) over his misery working for a father who never wept." Donald Hall β€’ Unpacking The Boxes
