Mama Fasts During Lent

A glance over the Lenten

roses while laughing

 

has the ability to change

the world as it is

 

known. A nervous

little woman holds her

 

stomach.  Reciprocation of love

is a concept lost on a childhood constructed

 

from forgetful fathers, departure

parade of step-fathers and drug addicted

 

mother.  Even if it’s not lost, and seen plain

as day, it’s always just out of reach

 

therefore unattainable.  That she knows. She

always teaches her son’s the wisest words ever babbled

 

are I don’t know shit.
