verursachen | a poem

she kissed you

and she felt something crack within you

*

and in concealment of her wound

our sister said

I think he’s laughing in his afterlife

*

the shock of the motherbody

electrocuted us all

*

pieces of our mother

escaped into us

*

and the loss of a brother

became the loss of a son
