Poem: "Diamond Finger"

This poem came out of the May 15, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] zeeth_kyrah, [personal profile] sporky_rat, and Anonymous. It also fills the "tough" square in my 5-1-18 General card for the Pro Wrestling Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Soupshue. It belongs to the Officer Pink thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: This poem is intense. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It features a family visit with emotionally complex reactions, Uncle Fang asking Turq about past abuse, talk about Shaolin Kung Fu, Turq writing out and illustrating as much as he can, multiple emotional breakdowns, lots of crying, and other challenges. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.
