Parental Tsunami



 Oh, there you are my brother.
 it is only father and mother.
 in one of their weekly
    tsunami
 of marital conflicts.
 may I hide with you before 
 it breaks down this bathroom door?
 I wish not to be overcome
    by the energies 
 of our parent's memories.

 aye! Am here too
 to hide
from their chide.
 what could it be about?
 oh how Mama can shout!
 As we lay here
 low beneath the waters
 together
 this storm we weather.
