Prologue to Heartbreak
by Amanda Field
Once I decided to go lost
in that dark lottery, said yes
to brigands and druggards
who understood my lofty ideals
and suffered blows inside
their mouths. Life took
my early years by the hand
in all their transparency
and taught me to prosper.
In my sleep, I was no longer
suspicious of family members.
