I have a family of pain
Living within me
Frances of the Hip
Joseph of the Back
Isaac of the Leg
Frances and Joseph strive and struggle
Against one another without thought or gain
They cut and slash with burning knives
And Isaac shrinks away
With their agony embedded within his fibers
And I sit back and ask the age-old question
Why can’t families just get along?
As love is the path of least resistance.
