hand washing…

hand washing

words
overheard
it was
her choice
now
she lies
blooded
and
he
across the border
she should’ve left him
but
what about
their children
it was
her
choice
a chorus
of indifference
repeated
as if
guilt
will be lifted
if said
often enough
the officer
waits
for the coroner
it is
his
choice

  1. Your blog sounds interesting and inspiring .. hope to see more. Thank you for sharing and best wishes always … 🙂

  2. Having a wife who worked in DV shelters and call rape, this is very tough to read. Hearing what so many folks go through just to find the disdain and judgment of his or her community is gut wrenching. Very well captured, my friend.
