	VISITING MY FATHER

	By William Michaelian


	The south wind rises
	stirs leaves among
	Fresno graves

	I am reminded
	of past storms
	ruined raisins

	the two of us
	walking through
	muddy fields

	bending over trays
	stuck to the ground
	in perfect rotting rows

	father and son
	using simple words
	to express amazement

	hide disappointment
	convince ourselves
	next year will be better
