This Defies Description


What Comes from Reading about the Nazis and Bolsheviks Before I Nap

Two Years in Tenzistan - it seemed such a long time.
Twenty per cent of my lifetime.
You were mom’s favorite,
she always liked you best.
Then she fed you a bit of arsenic in your porridge, and I held you and asked you what she was making for lunch.
She sang nursery rhymes and sharpened knives in the kitchen.
She loves you more than me.
A salad plate of tot-sized pretzels
Shaped like capybaras (the world’s largest rodent)
They looked so festive dusted with rat poison.
Eat well, little sister.
