"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

SHOCK & AWE

SHOCK  &  AWE         AND  ENVY

My  10 o’clock scratches at my eyes

and later that Summer dies   on a

helicopter    bound for Sick Kids

 

She was 9  and dreamed of having

a sheepskin coat  like mine   Called

me  big girl    Stole a fragile glass angel      from the shelf

 

And made a pearl necklace for the Panther

who terrified her     He had to be hidden

at first   gradually befriended    and bejewelled

 

She lay bare her envy  for my freedom   to buy pretty

coats    and  growup      Brave enough to wrestle me

to the floor  most Tuesdays       She would be         sweetsixteen

Her Song:

There’s no such thing as Monsters

There’s no such thing as Vampires 

There’s no such thing as Bloody Mary

Cause I believe in Jesus

 

Spring  2013
