Every Friday night your mother
lights the candles, Father said,
& thanks God for putting food
on the table. You'd think she'd
also thank me, but I'm never
mentioned. I've thought of
complaining, but then if I ever
fell into hard times & had trouble
providing food she wouldn't be able
to blame me. She could only blame Him.

Hal Sirowitz is the poet laureate of Queens.
