Dear Uncle

by Kiara Oelkers

The silence coursing through my ears,

Replaying boundlessness.

My focus on infinity,

Fugacious senselessness.

Grotesque fluorescent balls of light,

The veins of broken stars.

I caught him sleeping with a smile,

My mother purged her guard.

Confusion cursed my heart with grief,

My stomach filled with stone,

Why must he smile with such relief?

He left me all alone.
