The Serial Killer's Daughter
In 1978, Velma Barfield, of Robeson County, N.C., was convicted of first-degree murder. Velma Barfield was an ordinary, fiftyish live-in nursing assistant—an ordinary, working-class woman of no discernible distinction, unless you knew her secrets. The story of Velma and her daughter is told in a series of twenty-seven short poems narrated by the poet, the daughter, Velma, and, in one poem, Velma’s fiancé (Stuart Taylor, of whose murder she was convicted) as he is dying of rat poisoning. The last poem comes full circle back to the daughter and allows her to conclude her own story. And although she has forged a new life, she will never leave the past behind.
