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



Almost a woman  mystical princess  like Jasmine

without the Genie    10 and likely bi-polar  though

too early to know  for sure    Cluster of symptoms

chased you here    and there     Mother psychotic

beautiful & blackeyed like you    What about the       Dad ?

you ask     Did he disappear too ?    


You arrive at sessions with a guard   who pries

fingers off of   my arm    You laugh hysterically      Why are you so calm     therapist ?

I am trying to hold you  fast   & cling long & hard

Maybe one day you’ll cave   and drag me home          behind you
