The Family Meeting

Your eyes, pleasantly cloudy,
Idly indifferent
When the case worker
Brings the child into the room.
You pull out your phone
Browse through the latest
Slander on Facebook
While your child
Lays placidly
In a lively pink car seat,
Oblivious to your estrangement. †
We all watch you from our seats
And with impeccable determination
Refuse to criticize
What we donít understand. †
