Family Affair

She sits

sealed in a vacuum,

detached from the rest.

There’s an  un-crossable line

round an invisible corner.

Understood intentions

never to trust,

alone in a room

filled with the righteous.


Duplicitous smiles

evasive eyes

reveal the truth

they assume can’t be seen.

Who are the chosen

and who gets to decide?
