Damning Refrain

The deeper the words

  formed

 

The meaner they

  became

 

       ‘now free and alive

         and stirred from the bottom

 

      ‘once buried and denied

        in moments of pain’

 

Taking on new life,

  they glare and they scowl

 

Staring back from the mirror

  —a damning refrain

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: May, 2016)
