Beyond Reach

Standard procedure
dead rat
and vultures
having seizures
surrendered emotions
the world turning
in slow motion
bargain bin lust
mother takes another lover
speaking broken english
there's no time for tea
father's mistrust
makes him so happy
court room drama
a half witted judge
presides over all
as your parents fight
over ownership rights
and you take love
running out to chase
the fading sunlight
on a silver haired lama
 and with you alone
Buddha confides
flowing with green
seas and undercurrents
grab you in riptides
drifting away
beyond the reach
of your lifeline
