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

spirit communication

aunt bea
said
that
child
ain’t got
the sense
she was
born with
she married
a loser
and
rather than
cutting bait
and
running
she’s
hanging on
hoping
inside
that
bottom feeder
if spilt open
she’ll find
a magical frog
that
when kissed
will turn
into
a prince charming
i’d
say something
to her
but
i
haven’t learned
how to
raise
the dead
or
give slight
to
a blind
lovers’ eyes
