Lost to Fire

The charred shell
of our family’s
home
still smolders in a
pile
The ground beneath
scorched
A result of my
uncle’s…
crazy anger?
temper tantrum?
disturbing compulsion?
My mother is as
lost as all of
her burnt possessions
A life and relationship
consumed by
flames
This is the second
home she has lost
but the first
brother
