Linda

 

And so she had another drink

a cigarette as well

not a care for herself

or her daughter

just a need to feed the demon

growing in her chest

 

and then she’ll yell

and the daughter will cry

and the old man will have another beer

with her, the mother

 

and my mother will take the daughter

for every second that we can

until that beautiful demon

squeezes her

mother’s heart within its hand
