List of Damages

Flood in attic
Toys atop dramatic deluge
Emphatically they’ll conclude
contracted policy excludes
exhibits worth saving

Drown in waves shaving
skin from skeletal frame
Thin and bare, its petals to blame
for insane cycle
Again and again they have slain St Michael
Taint on spike sprinkled with gold
Withdraw now bloody, and sold as new

Forlorn body floats into view
Is this the child you once run through?
One untrue due to shame you never knew
One clue closer to naming…
No, sir, to maiming
they who severed beauty unseen
Weathered by duty I drift from scene
