Claine Keily # 17 Inheritance

She can barely
the milk
with hot raisins
served in rooms
which were swept with order
and where behind
her cot
there could be found
her grandfather's
inventory ledger
which her mother
had for years now kept under her own pillows
and which today
she soaks in baths
filled with bleach
so as to remove
the list of names


  1. Nice and puchy. ..love swept with order:)

  2. Love the way it packs a punch - and to me there's a sense of intrigue (with the bleach saturated baths) toying with or playing with the order. Great stuff!
