Final Notice

Final Notice

Crystal tears

fell from the sky, over mountains

and leaky valleys, freeing echoes

from another time and place,

through lacerated seams in

Mother’s wall; funny

how

ancient wounds

still bleeds.

Just the other day I caught

sight of her shine, finally

looking through eyes

that see, but time

is not ours to

replay…too

many

sins to repay, for casting

stones at mother’s house.

~

Provocative dreams fail

me now, replaced by

a myriad of faces

with jaded eyes

and

mindless

stares, as mother hands

down eviction papers.
