badger11 Posted October 29, 2010 Share Posted October 29, 2010 The muffled scream of child. Later I join Mother shuffling her cards, sipping her gin, playing poker with ghosts that live to win. The smell of soil reminds her of Father, his hands as brown as clay. I have no kin: I am the voice that drifts within soft skin. As night unzips her heart, her lips as white as chalk, I bind her soul until my sin empties a sigh for another end to begin. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
