-happy mother’s day-

May 8, 2016

Dear Mom
Thanks for giving me life.
Thanks for disappearing,
Time and again.
Thanks for putting your
responsibilities on your children.
Sisters, each forced to mother
The young’uns
When you could not be found.
Thanks for disappearing one day,
and for never coming back.
No, really, thanks.
You envisioned better things
For us, that walking away
Would help-
It didn’t, and then you died.
Once we’d said hello again,
It was time.
Thanks. For leaving eternally.
No, really, I mean it.
Happy fucking mother’s day.
