1 Light Years I have returned for my once-a-year poem. I wrote this at 3 AM a few weeks ago. Stole the pretty run-of-the-mill title from The National, and there's a nod to Leonard Cohen in here somewhere.

For My Dad on the Day After Father's Day This is the first poem I've written in forever that I really, really, really like. I would call it a "celebration of life" and a letter of motivation to myself.
