family

a complex tangle
of guilt and inhibition
— ramifications
impossible to fathom —
held purposely for healing

From his mother’s point of view (my half sister, over two decades younger than me) this ambiguity must surely be my defining characteristic. In my dream, we were trying to solve this together.
