How to Become Comfortable with Chaos

The door slammed on the history
Of brothers and sisters who once
Loved but have since rejected such
A vision of a caring world. There are
Christmas gifts on the lawn like a
Garden of toys and children laugh
Oblivious behind regrettably thin
Walls and windows. Blood contracts
Are not verbal contracts but they can
Be broken by the spoken word and
As such there are families who
Disintegrate in the pit of their dysfunction.
These are the men we know: aggressive
Trying to lasso the sun to control
The moon and succeeding only through
A slight of hand. Succumbing to
Illusion has always been our greatest
Downfall in the history of women.
