New Poem About the Roots of the Impostor Syndrome (I think)

        It's been a while since I posted something new, and that's not because I've written nothing that I consider memorable. In fact, I've been prolific during this pandemic era, posting poems and poetic thoughts and images daily on Instagram (@susanllipson), creating thought-provoking prompts for my online writing students, writing new songs and trying to figure out how to accompany myself on the ukelele, and working on revisions (slowly) of two novels.
         Nostalgia has played a big part in my thoughts these days (distracting me, but into necessary detours), and this poem, about my father, may strike a chord in you, I hope.
