Mother: A Poem
because when she birthed me it was only to have someone to hold her hand while she slowly shook her head back and forth in time with the music her breath the breeze
moves her skirts her silks her golden hair
that always has hidden treasures and feathers buried in it sometimes even sweet smelling oils she got in amsterdam or bhutan or somewhere far away
and she’d say one day she would live inside a great red rock cave and I would cry
but she never knew much about tears or anchors only wings and pretty crystals that sparkle in the sun
she’d dance and drum but still doesn’t sing so well yet her soul escapes through the notes because she doesn’t need a key
locks don’t exist in her universe only open windows so that she can shake her head back and forth in time with the music her breathe the breeze
and so I hold her hand.
