Do not let it get away,
Hold the line as if your life depends on it.
Break your back.
Hunch your shoulders.
This is how we shall eat.
How the children shall drink milk,
not bread and water.
This is your path to getting away
from the disdain that perpetuates
in this family.
You cannot suckle on my breasts,
or in my arms
for the rest of your life,
swim my dear child
hold your head above the water,

I can only watch you now.
