Freudian Inheritance – Wk One

DayOfTheDead

freudian inheritance

damage
her gnarly fingers
creep through
every
unexpected
gesture

words a hidden emotion

which freud called
…a slip

The poem was written back in 2004, while I was at Florence, Colorado.
The photo is one I took at the El Paso Museum of Art in 2016
