An unconventional relative is shamed by a wary, disingenuous family
Family Curse

A relative,
Regarded only condescendingly.
A victim to trepidation.
A risky topic of discussion.
The tattooed, taboo, tramp.

"Raided Nana's closet",
A verbatim account.
Apprehension fills a family room.
Pain contained in store-bought clothes.

Finally arrives a hunched, unhealthy heap
Of polluted skin and metal.
