HIRUDO

I latch leach-like
Onto my family

Blood

Being the only thing
That can sustain me
Through the darkest
Of days

No need of explanation
Or analysis of our
Consanguinity

We are who we are
In each other

Drawing life
From our communion
Understood

We do not suck
Each other dry
But fall away

Replenished
Into our respective
Separateness
