"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

MOMMY DEAREST

MOMMY  DEAREST

She nestled her head into the Barbie’s

shoulder   cooing like a dove   The doll

had just  given birth  to a baby   who

almost died    You are so lucky  she       squeaked

Grief seeping out the corners of her eyes

 

All my mother’s 13 children are lucky to be alive
