Paul Auster's Father

by Eileen R. Tabios

 

 

Stamped in golden letters
THIS IS OUR LIFE!

Yet the leather-bound album
"was totally blank inside"

the exception a yellowed photograph
slipping now from brittle pages

to reveal a man with a neat haircut
whose image sits, quintupled,

around a table as if he is more
than one and all can play poker.
