Mack

by JAH

Mack gets what he wants. 
If he doesn't, he'll have a tantrum until he does.
It's always been this way and always will.
His sons have mo father, no support from him.
Mack sees their relationship as a quid pro quo.
His sons have hoped against hope for Mack to come through for them.
He never has, does, or will.
It leaves them broken: emasculated, needing, wanting, destining in vain.
For them there's n replacement for Mack.
They can't find one in themselves. 
Mack's driving a yacht leaving them in its wake like debris.
They're angry, resentful.
They talk often, laugh about Mack, telling old stories.
But these stories are a projection of their humiliation.
Again and again they've modeled Mack.
But as much as his quid pro quo worked for him.
It only sets them back.
Their ambitions are thwarted again and again.
Constantly they recapitulate their loss.
Regret is part of their DNA. 
They can't help themselves.
When they try they fail. 
Mack feigns caring, "I can have lunch with you.
But I don't understand.
Why are you coming into the city.
To see a dentist?
You should wait until your stabilized."
Mack denies there's a cure for heart disease.
Mack want his sons to keep track of him. 
But he's constantly calling them, but leaving them out.
