More important things to do

Like unfortunate events

I wish there was something you had to occupy you

like some secrect agent job

whilst I was growing up

just so the excuses didn’t make my ears bleed anymore

just to make up for me sitting by the door

looking out the window

the single glazed

double glazed

wooden framed

and then the 1st floor open bay

make up for every engine, car , wheel

I heard and thought was yours

Every birthday card undelivered

Every event uninvited

and every incident, school play, written essay you barely attended,

no sight of your heroic ways bursting through the front door in a yellow cape, with eyes wider than and owls before a mouse is a snack. What was it ? Was there something more important than I? I wonder but will never know why.
