tuam bones, by reuben woolley

when we are the monsters
in my bright
shadows the bells
don’t ring
…………………don’t bleed
a soft song & children
hear
………..unworded where
they lie

…………………my son

…………………my daughter.it left
its bones behind

…………………strangling

……………………………………..the doctor said

would be kinder
