You Know Pop

Your family portraits on the walls
don’t represent your lineage. Two daughters,

your first children are not found
in what images you choose to represent

your offspring. Does that make you a better
man, to have taken in a son you mistreated

neglecting his heart, does that make you a better man
to have exchanged your two daughters for a son? Then you

made a new daughter, the one you make giant wall images of
to show off for the world to see. Does that make you a better man,

or does it make this neglected woman with your surname
a better man than you?
