Alien (or Not)

Believe it or not
she’s getting better.
The tears and tantrums
are signs that she’s processing through
some of this, at least.
Angry as she seems
she’s beginning to understand
the gravity of the situation
and is closer to addressing the weight of it all.

She yells and screams, surely
but each arch action
is an opportunity for her
to realize what’s wrong
and a chance to fix it.
After she throws something
she apologizes.
When she’s done berating the driver
she sleeps easily for the first time
in months.

It’s all signs of some improvement, really.
Even if it doesn’t quite seem like it.
