2189: I knew a family

I knew a family of arch
snobs & narcissists – of
each other they loved –
off-centre – Degrees of
introspection had cast
less balance until they
fell on their selves – In
truth there wasn’t love
left over [not enough] –
Rats’ll feed on a pup if
food is scarce – I saw it
happen in that family –
a doe’s way to manage
her children – to love &
control [narcissistic all
in their views] – She let
blood drip off her lips –
as if a sign to be shown
[as if a fairy story – told
& undoable] – Vermin’ll
settle in any dry space –
some families engorge
all their own to control
