Jackie and Jack

In the Canyon and Garrapata,
I witnessed two idols fall,
Dissolved as if by acid,
Both by choice, with alcohol.

Jack, my surrogate father,
Was only a dream I had….
Aloof, drunk and deserting
No different from my dad.

So many conflicting memories
Under the Bixby Creek Bridge… 
I still envisioned a future,
Far beyond that Big Sur ridge.

Jack, you are still my hero,
Tarnished, but a part of me…
And then, there’s the father I hated;
Another genius, time set free.
