Poem: Everybody Knows

Everybody knows that daddy used drugs.
Everybody knows that daddy was addicted.
Everybody knows that daddy exists.
You don’t know that daddy was a rock star.

Everybody knows that daddy was wild.
Everybody knows that daddy is obsessed by violence.
Everybody knows that daddy is sex incarnate.
You don’t know that daddy knew not how to love.

Everybody knows that daddy could be dead.
Everybody knows what daddy has done.
Everybody knows that daddy is crazy.
.but there ain’t nobody knows how much daddy loves
..his boy.
