The Child Adapts






to see or not to see
that was the question

to speak or not to speak
that was the answer

I tried not to see
but my eyes got
in the way

so I sat in silence
with the elephant
in the middle of
the room

and looked with my
eyes as my parents
dosed off in their
status quo


dared not
dream of
their misery
