copy what

trauma, especially the kind that gets passed down

is like being a member of a club you think is exclusive

but may more actually be universal

speaking of it may get you excommunicated

from all your social groups

much more admirable to soldier on silently

like every generation before

trauma alters cells, they say

and we pass it on

whether we speak of it or not

so speak, I say

call it out

clear its register from the body

and halt this chain of replication
