For Donna and For Scott
to speak the unspeakable
to bear witness for the dead
If I kill myself am I a murderer?
Is it as bad as killing another?
What of interrupted ones who never were?
I have lost a half-sister and half-brother
She to suicide and he to criminal neglect
Is it any wonder then that I do not respect
The father we three share?
I am the last and least
In the belly of the beast
There I have spent my life where
However terrible it is for me
For Donna and for Scott
It is no more for they are not
To be for them was not to be
I honor you my siblings though unknown
The last and least and lost is left alone
