Talk

Love came without a little one knowing
He ate up two sons and spit out a daughter
I thought I saw how we could be cared for
But jumped and twisted with agony when I learned the truth

She came home to a note and empty drawers
Came home to the closet where the clothes she had washed were missing
She came home to pills for smiles and dreams
Came home to the dead bird stuck in her throat she thought she had buried

I run it out
I meditate it through
I talk until I don't want to bore you or hurt you
I sleep soundly
