I Still Talk to My Father

I still talk to my father in dreams.
Sometimes I see my mother from a distance.
My father always has some new form
Of industry he has created in his basement workshop
Lit by fluorescent tubes.  My mother
Calls down from the top of the stairs:
Dinner’s ready!  I, being the one who dreams
The dream, do not move.
He’s not coming, he says he’s dreaming.
My father climbs the stairs to the sounds
Of pork chops frying.  I believe
It’s early December, and a particularly cold one:
Pale frost on the window.
This is how I spend time
with those who have gone on before me.
