chimed unison
dwindling startled analysis

They do not know to be startled when adoption is presented as a benefit. Perhaps decades later—if they survive the ensuing years—when they stumble on a mirror that reflects the ghosts of blood ancestors, they will utter what they did not know to chime as children: This relationship begins with loss. If they become poets, they might add, “Redress” is not synonymous with “benefit.”

Ensuing years—oh, poetry is so not worth the dwindling
