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
