Vulnerable vulgarities,

She was a fugitive 

Lost in her mind.

Too easy.

Cast aside, a frail target.

Does dignity have a price?

Vacations

After explosive rages

And hours of tug of war.

Easy score.

Soul binding flashy gifts

Blank greeting cards 

Sealed shut with her tears

In which trauma tongue-tied licks 

And confusing strokes 

Kept her in a choke hold.

Not even one handwritten sentence in the card?

Sign sealed delivered

Another long drive 

While toting the fetus.

The stories we tell our children.
