After Alex Tizon’s article "My Family’s Slave" as regards Eudocia Tomas Pulido 
(The Atlantic, June 2017)


chase lives borne
out of lonely pangs

welcome ignorance
so they shine

swallow wit

keep silent

no one sees
your grief

they save no one
blame everyone
except the images
their mirrors catch

pray for someone
to give love
to break chains
to free everyone
even reflections
trapped by mirrors
