in the dark-
the secret, in Dad’s chair,
watching the Cardinals game
eagerly looking ahead to
when this is done
by childish adults,
mockingly rejoicing
the sacrifice.

Recently discovered
the secret
absconds to the bowels
of St. Petersburg,
faith so utterly misplaced,
so fully betrayed,
struggling to keep her family
destroyed by the intrusion
of a runaway from St. Louis.

Her lies-
going to get
the unsuspecting children,
of her dead husband
by her  betrayal of my trust,
by cruel sadistic acts
of sacred ritual of molesting children
by administrative fugitives
out on $2500 bond
who keeps her warm at night,
in the dark.
