New Awakening

Sometimes family
is like a sleeping bath
too comfortable
to face the dry cold

Sometimes the family
is as warm water
embalming winter's
hopes of Spring

Sometimes the family
buries you
in comfort
faucet drips trembling

some man takes you
the hell
out of there
leaves you
feet on the floor
gasping for air
cold alive and grateful
sometimes he is
the police.

he is alive
now so are

to be cont.'d

next week my X ends. I pop a skeleton myself, out of my family's closet. God Grant us peace and forgiveness...
