FAIRY TALES

my dearest daughter 

how absurd is it that we

should not know each other

after all these many years

part of it is my fault

my parental responsibility

overshadowed by my hatred

for that woman

you call a mother

in another universe

maybe things would be different

but I never read you 

fairy tales as a little girl

and I’m sure as hell 

not going to start now
