Year One: Yes, Father
Published on June 14, 2018 by Paul Ciano
I’ve tried to be patient.
I’ve tried to wait.
But I have to know. How, father? How do I do it?
What do I use…to make them afraid?
If I ring the bell, Alfred will come. Another of your gifts to me, father.
But I’d rather die than wait another hour.
I’ve already waited eighteen years.
…since all sense…
…left my life.
