To call him the Devil would be a compliment.
He.. is something more sinister..
so evil that Satan would be jealous.
Yet nothing can be done..
We are crying..
we are terrified and traumatized.
When nothing works the terrors grow at large. .
The nightmares won't stop screaming.
Our fears won't stop stalking..
No words can describe how it feels
to have Terror disguised as your own uncle..
ginger soup tastes like hellginger soup for what ails you,ginger soup tastes like hell16 hours ago in Free Verse
for autumn damp and winter
bleak, ginger soup for stomach
and heart and all that lies between.
ginger slices fiery-sweet, boiling
water bloodless yellow like your
grandmother's hands; it is peasant's
ambrosia, amber and rank as the
sweat on your skin when once you
summered on a bamboo mat one
Sichuan august night. child,
ginger soup builds character.
WaitingWaiting for her diagnosisWaiting1 day ago in Free Verse
Schroedinger's executioner. The gun is both loaded and not until it is fired.
A living pause button, on the edge of grief and relief
Will I look back on this moment as the beginning of the end
Looking for evidence to analyze,
Waiting, begging for an answer,
6 days stretches into an eternity,
Each moment dragging into years.
Waiting for a death sentence or a pardon
