For My Father-in-Law

Tom’s Trick (or Origami)

So often he was tickled
by the feather
edging out of your
… the one you hadn’t
placed there.
He plucked it
with a chuckle,
this whisper of whimsy.
All you saw was
the glint of his amusement
ruffling the smooth appearance
of another same old day,
as he teased
a tuft out of
your stony reason,
freeing a bird.
