Apology

babyjaneis-a-bside:

a girl, she named her jewel, she sang
along with a metronome, a sweet alto.
it didn’t picture as she meant.  she hurt.

she sank bare legs in white pebbles.
she sat on a tire swing and watched her father kill her mother.

little jewel, her mama gave her name and stance,
but she loved her father more.
