In logic, a counterfactual is a conditional of how the world would be, if, in an if/then statement, the antecedent were true. A ‘what-if’ kind of world, a world in which there are alternative histories. In this paper I will examine the possibilities of writing this kind of wish-story where a mother is a morals crusader on a mission to save children, and a daughter finds a way to break the silence and rebel. What does a daughter owe her mother? Is it possible to write your body out of silence? Can this written body become poetry, food for living?
