Half Mother- Poem

We won’t go anywhere today

My loves

Body and mind separate

Only a half mother is left

Wash the dishes

Clean the floors

Push back the creeping darkness-


Raise your voice an octave and smile

There is no help coming

There is no one to reach inside you

And resuscitate your deteriorating heart

No one to cut the festering tumor

From your belly

Push it down, push it down

And smile
