Bad Mother

Sullen faces speak
Words they'll never mention,
Years of mental mutilation.
Matriarch playing the victim--
A sly predator,
Enticing her small children to love her
As more than a mother.
Run.

Her teenage daughter finds solace
In vampires and film-strips of dark houses,
Emulating her innermost feelings.
Run.

Father is passivity
Incarnate, the epitome of submission,
Convictions starved in smoke, hazily ignorant.
Run.

What she put out came back to her.
Paying for her preying, bound behind bars.
In flashes, all that forsakes her,
Forgot her futile family, ran.
