Leaning on Dad

one thirty phone call
legless teenage son in need -
dad's taxi deployed

falling up the stairs
legless teenage son in need -
dad's support required

incoherent sounds
legless teenage son in need -
dad's patience tested

vomiting in bath
legless teenage son in need -
dad's memories stirred

falling out of bed
legless teenage son in need -
dad's muscles tested

sleeping in stupor
legless teenage son in need -
dad's constant vigil

long sleepless night
tired exhausted dad in need -
full day's work beckons
