Abandoned Valentine

History is not the same theme
Happening over and over
But variations on a mood
Within a certain time frame
Leading to a new theme
Already foreshadowed
Already old and familiar
Like the double childhood
In America of slavery
And whiteness
What to do with it
Now we are all
Woven together into
One contentious family
Still brother against brother
Eve and Helen abandoned alone
