It goes without saying
she will find Legos and games
stuffed into closet, dirty socks
tucked under bed, candy wrappers
shoved far back in second drawer.
What cannot be discussed
is how faith in you was lost,
hidden away so deep,
out of the blue comes this lack
of trust, sudden need to sift
your stuff. Better not bring up
betrayal, question why she
freaks out, intrudes. Head down,
keep busy with the broom.
