Whatever haunted her
From that era that was a C.I.N.O.
childhood in name only.
Have chewed through her hands
And her whole self.
And it has spilled over on others
And burned each one of us.
Now there is one left
And one woman’s demons,
Have taken over everything around the child
She has kept it at bay
For 15 years
At the cost of so much of her light.
But the hell has not spread.
And that may be all the justice we get.
