RELATIVE

As the Joy of Life hung in the salon
Frozen beneath thawing Moskva
Shush... kin's son dies

A muntjac flies via ginger tinged trees
White arsed across the cabbage field
As shots fire

Mothers smother the fathers further
A knuckle uncle taunts at aunts nice
Coy sins and nieces

And we pray to be forgiven for hurt given
And I say I'll write a letter
Yet forget to

Our regrets
Never kiss it better
Forget it carry on
As if no carry on had gone on
No wood smoke gun smoke fire
And they're gone

And the screams in my dream
Are a whimper at the wake
