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.
