Is This Life?

Black bee sting lingers,

Spreading its poison over

And over again.


Brother’s Alzheimer’s

And family dysfunction

And friends’ critical words.


A small girl cowers,

Ineffectively shielding

From vicious attacks,


While the enemies

Grow drunk in their ecstasy

That she is broken.
