It was 1963 or 4, summer,

and my father was driving our family

from Ft. Hood to North Carolina in our 56 Buick.

We'd been hearing about Klan attacks, and we knew



Mississippi to be more dangerous than usual.

Dark lay hanging from the trees the way moss did,

and when it moaned light against the windows

that night, my father pulled off the road to sleep.



                                                                  Noises

that usually woke me from rest afraid of monsters

kept my father awake that night, too,

and I lay in the quiet noticing him listen, learning

that he might not be able always to protect us



from everything and the creatures besides;

perhaps not even from the fury suddenly loud

through my body about his trip from Texas

to settle us home before he would go away



to a place no place in the world

he named Viet Nam. A boy needs a father

with him, I kept thinking, fixed against noise

from the dark.
