the numerology of payback

The Numerology of Payback

“Nein!” she cried out,
but he did it anyway.
He was a soldier &
she was a
child of the enemy.
He didn’t care
that she was
only nine.

 

Afterward her
tender years
tipped upside down &
triplicated into sixes.
She went down the
path of evil
on Bremerhaven’s
red-light streets,
hellbent on payback.
