A Valediction

Lingering smells of wood shavings

Rich tobacco, fruity and thinly wafting

Aftershave, and Sunday best.

A calico memory, gone to another home now

A home gone to another family

Before I was wise enough to grasp

With a man’s understanding handshake

All that is left are a few tokens and bright, red feathers

Assembled in a rough shape

Resembling you.
