Canto Napoli

my father

god bless him

a long long time ago

immigrant

honorary member

the Italian Drama Club

a true virtuoso

with an Americanized lobotomy

competing daily

with other drunk drivers

swerving
and swearing
effusively

but way way
deep
down
I
know

my sad song of Naples

hairy chest

he honestly tried his best

to show me

the true meaning of life

w h i c h

to this day

I strive

to

unfold
