Afterlife

Villagers will call him crazy
The way he walks aimlessly with a purpose
Spreading the ugly family truths 
that have caused silent dysfunction for years 
Only to come out when his father
Raises his hand to give his mother the last blow to her chest 
Dead
I'm not sure how many times he expected to hit her 
We resist but we do break 
Broken and dead 
Living in moving bodies that we never fully learned about 
Afterlife as our broken pieces remain in the men we gave our lives to in place of us
