What I remembered this morning

Backpacking through Thailand
warm rain
verdant hills
rusty buses
looking for a TV to watch the game
dressed as the two girls from Scooby Doo.

Serial killing through the town I was born
not bothering to hide the bodies
in midnight fields ‘cause
well, why should I?

Names crossed off the list, like
a mum on a big shopping trip.

An ultra Conservative Christian family
with 15 ginger children who all wear glasses,
tethered in a row
like dominoes
brainwashed about who begat who.

Stockholm syndrome feelings for your parents
the pain of phantom limbs,
lose teeth rattling in gums.
