Manuela Thiess Garcia: poems (2003)

BETRAYAL

 

Home: a stage

The walls: a crumble

 

The players: themselves

 

The need: security

The want: attention

The confusion: chaos, as far as the eye can see

 

The scene: a succumbed landscape anxious to renew itself

The action: forced

The resolution: no joining

 

The dream: fulfillment

The frustration: no change

 

The feelings: the feelings,

The

   ...the need

The agony: postwar remnants

                            of postwar remnants of

                            remnants

                            of remnants

And the children

               of the children

               of the children

Is what happens to

 

               the children.
