Deflated

She girded herself

Steeling against

expected humiliation

conveyed with official

paperwork delivery

Cell walls

breath- strengthened

to prevent implosion

 

Business-like handover,

unostentatious and devoid of gloating,

rueful fleeting glance

pinprick protective balloon

 

Tears trickle to the tune of warring thoughts-

stamped reminder of her disgrace

and reflection upon dismal task

performed by a sister.

 

Confound her empathy!
