The child in this poem has not been abused,
didn’t grow up somewhere exotic or poor.
This child had shoes to wear and an average mix
of good days and bad. There may be a man in this poem,
he drives the car, goes to work and plays
with his children. He is kind to animals. The woman
in this poem gazes out of the window while she washes
her hands which are not the hands of the child in this poem.
If you have any comments on this unpoem, Angela France would be
pleased to hear from you.
