Cleansing

Practicing parent
do not strangle emotion
as if it a demon
hosting your child
there is nothing to exorcise
nothing to cleanse
you speak of vast cathedrals
endless with ceiling and reach
whispering lies
through the shutter of that black box
free, you promise
with the taste of the holy water you made them gargle
still on their tongue
free, you preach
with a judge sat on the other side of the wall
listening for the moment
when their sinning breath
catches.
