Familial Conflict

The wars go deeper, the psychology is deeply considered and brutal, the routes beneath the skin are so well known. No surprise then that civil wars are so ugly. No surprise that familial conflict is often savage.

No Tanks, No Guns,

neither mercy nor rules,
no limits;

not dogs nor even their teeth,
just ourselves quarrelling.

How dexterously we tease
at each other's sores,

making our incisions
with surgical precision.
