An anniversary, of sorts

he looks solemn
          in his dark coat and tie
his shoes polished
          to a shine

he smells of Old Spice and
          shower steam
eating Cheerios and
          going through the routine

white shirt
          starched and pressed
black pants
          ironed
curly dark brown hair
          combed

He stands
          and kisses his family
                                                Goodbye
