Dear Daughter

He's not built on religion
   to sanctify
some church's dirty pigeon

To ponder the life beyond
   he's not inclined
just the days now
   and behind

Talk of such
   is sometimes too much
 hands tight to chest
    a nod at best
       but I don't mind

Yesterday

       my dad called me

                an angel
