Daddy #2.Poem.Janet P. Caldwell


I Remember him

Glassy blue eyes

Fingertips brown

Black greasy hair

Forehead high

Child killer

Sick bastard


I Remember me

Scuttling like a rat

Running from a cat

Scattering across the tile

 Like a roach on fire

When the lights came on

Better scatter, Daddy’s home!


I Remember (séances)

Straddling his head

The Shoulders so high

Calling up the dead

Peering in the sky

Let the dead arise

It’ll stop Daddy’s cries

I Remember Abuse

Dancing to the belt

That beat me blue

Decorated with welts



 I Remember You
