Speechless by Julie Schneider
published in Volume 2, Issue 5 on November 8th, 1995

Your brother, angry
that you weren't at his wedding
refuses to speak.
 
You were too busy saving your life
drying out in detox
dancing on the head of a pin.
 
Even now, this second marriage is
dead
and he's still angry.
 
Funny, how some grudges
last longer than
life,
 
are stronger than
blood.
Brothers,

what difference does it make now
except to the
mute.
