I have said things
about you
I meant
to keep hidden
until my last
will and testament
was read aloud.

will have to determine
thru the blur of truth
and distorted memory
what punishment
your crimes demand
from the just.

If I am
the last of our line,
I am sure
your chained ghost
will deliver me
a hard face
full of denial
and victim blaming
while you suffer
infernal torments
from below
your conscious

  1. A stark indictment. Amazing how suffering simply begets more suffering, on and on through years and bloodlines. And even more amazing when one sturdy soul has the insight, tenacity, tenderness, and wherewithal to break that cycle.
