Me?

Why was it me, every time,

who picked up the phone, hands

broken, shaking, angry, crying out

to keep calm, that it would be ok,

when inside it tore away every

single shred of my childhood to

say, with a cry and crack of the voice,

my mother is dying, my father

is killing her. Send the

police.
