mother

April 7, 2010

born, only mother. no father
brotherly worship. love life
till you die so the memories
will not fade. mind barricades
the pictures of togetherness

married. children, married
eight is a lucky number. live
until you are happy to go
to other worlds, watching us
grow quiet and devastated

old woman, back bent straight
grandchildren want you, need
you to know things they cannot
say. wish you knew more about
me. thinks you do already. know
