Another Slam Poem – Seattle Daughter’s Voice: Revolutionary Email Free Verse

January 20, 2015

My Dad,
who left us
after I left,
has grown fat
and confident.
He seems to not give

My Mom,
who stayed
after I left,
and who was still there
when I returned,
has grown fat
in her self-loathing.

And I,
somewhere between,
hide in my room,
wishing I could scream
“GO, PACK, GO!”

Or in my face/
c/
a Robin Williams look-alike,/
turn and race/
screaming ‘YIKE!’/

Often I’m confident;/
sometimes I don’t know where it went.
