Violet

-“Hello Sweetie!”

-“Hello”

-“What’s your name?”

-“Violet”

-“And how old are you, Violet?”

-“Four”

-“And do you have a favorite animal?”

-“ummm lickle wabbits”

-“Awww bless you Violet”

 

It still rankles:

Her, the tiny frame

in the fluffed world

of her coat on stage.

The dimpled grin caught

by all that bright flash.

 

-“Name”

-“Violet”

-“Age”

-“16”

-Silence

-“It’s a rabbit”

-“What?”

-“Nothing”

 

The ride home muted,

frozen in the Flash.

Her, the hollow in her bones;

The silhouette of the dance

of innocence and innate stain.

 

Name: Violet

Age: 19

Cause of Death: OD

Time: 3:00 PM

 

The truth lay in that flash.

Black lies on white,

They missed out the wabbits.

They missed out me.

Cause of Death.
