Him

Goodbye
My yellow feathered
Love
And our beautiful
Flawless
Girl.

As for the
Question
I can only 
Say
That the 
Court found a 
Wolf
A dark
Bloodied
Wolf
Beneath my 
Sheepish 
Lapel
And all the
Bleach
And all the 
Bloodied 
Rags
Couldn't possibly
Hide
What I'd done.

So when you think
About which is worse
I think
You'll
See
That a father
In prison
For life
With 
Bloodied
Hands
Is more heartbreaking
More terrifying
More painful
Than a father
Who died 
Before his 
Beautiful baby girl
Could see what a 
Monster
He was.

Farewell
My two
Beautiful
Loves
I'll watch the flowers
In our daughter's head
Grow
Without the taint
Of a 
Bloodied 
Seed
So she can have a 
Bitterly welcomed one
Instead
So the grasses of
Intelligence
Won't wither
Within her
And so the blooms
Of good music taste
And tolerance 
Shall completely
Totally
Overcome the bitter
And turn that seed
Into love.
