Poem: Red Hiding Hood

Hidden in the small flame
I will remember

My father is looking for your father
They know they drove nails through everyone’s

Words, not my own

Hidden in the small flame
I called

Whore mark
Hair Fragrance
Dry feet
If you remember

I admire you
I was very small

When it comes to me
Press your hands on the ground

I accept night
You must remember

These low, these tears are for you
Hidden in the small flame
