In The Torn-Apart Years

In The Torn-Apart Years

written by: John Sweet


growing up in some pale grey
ghost town of tomorrow or
maybe not growing up at all

maybe making the wrong choice
in the wrong house on a
dead-end street

tells his mother that his
father hated her and she laughs,
says he hated all of them

no secrets

no punches pulled

the kingdom of nil
