Read Poem: A FATHER’S LOVE, by D. Fuller Smith

Society of thought
words irrelevant
actions on display
investigating murder
it happened one day

Interrogation stalled
a suspect’s mind
flooded pink
unable to see
what he thinks
the investigation
into murder
goes no further

A crime committed
the suspect’s guilt
obscured by pink
the investigator thinks
they conceal witness
of the crime
shielded thoughts
of what was wrought

The next phase
a straight line
through the maze
the suspect saw
the crime of his…


The killer unmasked
by a father
taking the task
protecting his boy
the pink dissipates
the investigator
sees the murder
through the eyes
of the father
