my big brother richard

today you turn 49
and i’m six weeks away
from becoming 36

and i need you to know
before we drink ourselves
to a reasonable death

i love you

some of the happiest moments of my life
were spent as super baby
flying above
my big brother richard’s
running through the house
super hero head

i remember every hug
you’ve ever given me

because you made me believe i could fly
before i learned to walk
