Brothers

 

Lips say “I forgive you”

Hatred clenches in your heart.

 

Eyes look right through you

As tears wash down your face.

 

Hands clasp in greeting.

Then yours wipe across your thigh.

 

A voice says you have value.

Yours says “You are a disgrace.”

 

I try to understand you.

You know it’s too late to try.
