2036: Hand-print

I was not around for
my hand-print to be
added – as a sixth of
a family-pressing – I
was ‘to be added’ [a
missing that did not
get corrected] – but I
was never captured
in that planting – My
own kids were never
gladly welcomed – a
dearth they told me
about afterwards – I
imagine it ripped as
a landfill’s thin layer
[a crumpled cast-off
of broken family lore
& other lees] – It was
framed & left behind
when I packed up – a
mounted reminder –
another lie on paper
to be examined here
