Kit Kelen #321 - family portrait

family portrait

the old ones on the wall
not so old really
no one got to be then
but they are severe
as if about to box
the photographer's ears
wash our mouths out
with soap and water
give us a dose
of cod liver oil

and the one who mucked it up
grey blur
the couldn't-sit-still girl
she must have kept moving
because the records won't reveal
a death date for that one

she's still out chasing rabbits
doubt she'll be back
in time for her tea
