MOUTH OF THE NILE

my parents are two rivers becoming one,

swift anger meeting rippling worry in a churning pool.

they direct their energies into my river that becomes stronger and more combatant each day.

they are at war

and i am their two sides combined. no wonder i constantly bleed from self-inflicted wounds.
