Bearded Iris by Lisa Shea



Tammy M. Brown

Abruptly she erupted from the core.

Broken atoms ferociously
exploded into dust
and lingered for long moments,
before imploding back together
with a brutal pummel.

Within those moments
an incompleteness,
a piercing emptiness
so vast was born.

Falling to her knees, head thrown back,
she burst forth a primal keen
from a depth not known to even exist
within oneīs very own being.

This, when your fatherīs face
revealed to her your death.
