My poem, ‘ My dad, the Pied Piper’ was published on 26th November 2021, on my dad’s first death anniversary by Spillword Press. It was very kind of them to publish the poem on the very date. I wrote the poem a month earlier and sent it to them informing them about the death anniversary in the comments section of the Submissions page. I am also telling you this, so you know that this was how I felt a month before his death anniversary- I felt a sudden longing to see him and hear from him again. On the day of the anniversary, however, I felt stronger, at ease.
The link to the poem is below.
Your phone lies dead in my bedside drawer
I plug the charger in
It doesn’t bother me how long it’ll take
to revive- ‘coz I’m not sure
why I’m doing this
what I’m looking for
what I expect to find
I hear a beep – it comes alive
And I wish it were that easy
to bring back to life
