Hearing Ears -- Poetry 2011






Falling on hearing ears…

decisive imbalance,

controlled acknowledgement

attempting to share

some insight into your display.

Trio shares an Incongruous

relationship dynamic filled with

detrimental demonstrations:

flaring, swearing, violence…

laced with snuggle and love



Our havoc was after paternal visits;

emotional backlash shuddered for two weeks.

Finally settling into routine, I don’t remember

monstrous retribution aimed at my Mom,

Dad or myself… although conflict danced

between your brother and you…



so jarred by this latest theatrical exhibition,

I am physically exhausted, emotionally drained;

knowing my words would fall on hearing ears

locked into familial distortion…
