I didn't know

until I looked back

how much damage

I shared with other

members of my family

who are these people

and what were we to each other

that we're here now with our familiar

and recognizable aches? what do we

owe each other?

whose to say? we engage with each other

alternately pinning each other to the mat

and you did or you didn't or fuck you

it's all your fault and no one's to blame

and everyone's to blame and oh shit leave it be

so many of us leave it behind in the ruins of our lives

let god rifle through the trash and find things

with which to punish us

we've moved on and so have those who've harmed us

and all get what's coming to them anyway
