It's family court today, how do
I feel? It's better not feeling my
own blood rising and falling with motions.
Yes, rather let my mind dictate a high
sonority, a stature bellowing,
composure. A judge, lawyer , father (no
child) but the mother (my daughter), and her mother,
my wife, in this pot, no DNA that
is common to me. Adoption, marriage
and a child forced in, has joined me to this
house of all nations; eastern Europe to
a tropical island.Estranged am I from
the tall trees and streams of my home town;
my dad, my mom, my sister and brother.
I have become a stranger to myself.
