The fractured photo matches right up with the poem. I am captured by the lines “My adoptee affections polarize realities, that cause reactions that unjustly inflict pain.” May your kin learn not to inflict pain on you (I know I’m doing my damnedest to avoid inflicting pain on my own kin). Well done, Emily!!!
