She left. We wept. 30 The Silent Scream After I had left you in your silence I was visited by a child who had lain dormant. She came to me in the starkness of the day and told me of a misery that had eaten her soul and rotted her life-force. She retched and wailed in my arms and I caressed her convulsing torso until a calm descended. She told me of her memories about a time when the world was a fretful place how she would pray for love to embrace her cold heart. She told me of her abandonment and her withdrawal into herself.

You took her after beating her. You took her after abusing her. You took her in twisted lust. You took her in blind rage. You took her without consent. You took her! You took her! Daddy, when you took Mummy you took me. 43 Every Friday Night Every Friday night you lie in wait eyeing your prey craving a carcass. Every Friday night we await the mauling praying for intercession that never comes. Every Friday night your savage moods shroud us in dread steal us of joy. Every Friday night in she walks senses numbed to endure your devouring of flesh.

I cannot think of anything good about your collective wills— death was the toy with which you played.
