Resounding rebounding voice—


Family sighs,

Grandmother or mother or

whatever is dead.


now a dad cries a little,

Most of his tears staying in his head.


He is the Christmas baby. Wanted to be loved.

discarded for another.



Daphnees. Cries. Are. of joy.


Daphnees voice—


I Likes chips and cheese,   she is known for saying,

What is the food order she’s asks, can’t get enough of that.

Need a strainer for a string to hold up my apron,

You got money?

We’ll need it for the burial.



Resounding rebounding voice—

Johnny’s still sniffling,

What’s he going to do now?


Big H don’t care no more,

He hurts of course but you won’t see it even you look,


Remember he’s the one that wrote 7 ways to kill your parents.


Electrocute, drown, stab with a 15 foot shore spike, chloroformed left in a burning house, arrow to the head, multiple gun wounds to the stomach, buried half alive among tree debris in a gully.
