Her Father's Affair

A bad color to cover her
When she's hiding her evil father
And defending the anxiety
That covers her with a shade
To block the opaque light
The translucence that captivates her
Affluent status while living homeless
The mitigation of security
Pulled into this alleviation
Of lightheads and lightbulbs
That blind eyes with spots of black
And all considerations are falsities
In this distress of lovers leaving
And fathers painstaking
In this palatial sense of doom
And all worthiness is contradiction
In its own testimony
When daddy snuck out years before
And held the sin deep in his lap
Baring all transgression on my mother
When she lives in styptic denial
And I shame on the blastfamous lies
Like lightheads and lightbulbs
That blind eyes with spots of black
This bitter conclusion to a
Meticulous mindset.
