Ten siblings

though an only child

Divorced fraternal

 bastardis wild


Ten reminders

of what I’m not


 dropped not caught


Ten siblings

that share my name

Whose backs have turned

with eyes that blame


Regret incessant

to live outside

This name a prison

—wherein I hide


(Dreamsleep: May, 2022)
