ANNEXATION = Ukraine by Stefanie Bennett

In my Mother’s House,
A deceptive land
… An impulse
Waxes lyric

While unencumbered
The axe-head
And wood-block lie
– Seen only from
The bi-fold window.

There – time steps through
The filament’s
Grasping squall… and
It’s found

How I am – now,
Twice as able
As once
Was Cain.

Stephanie Bennett
