The Forgotten Child
fragmented words in deaf courts.
The child lost vanishes.
Words gibed by a silent society,
murmured in the eyes of eight-eyed men,
a child screams.
Comforted by only the silence
of hidden spiders from another world.
Through such loose-woven lips,
a crying child begins
and in whose new eyes
the terror of the world is seen.
Innocence torn away
like the depredation of vestal nuns,
by those who do not ponder.
The loss of childhood,
an act as black as sin.
Society is quiet in the face of evil.
A child boondoggled to keep from trouble.
A bug among a million spiders,
unenlightened and forgotten,
a child lost vanishes.
