Mother

I just

Want to lay in the mud.

Dark wet heavy mud.

That will cake my skin

And then crack and peel off

In brittle brown earth chunks.

I want to,

Tell the earth with my skin,

That I, am tired too,

That I recognize the frustration,

In her somnolent actions,

Lined with vehement anger.

I could,

Cry into the sea,

And add my salty sorrow,

To the sludge,

To the noose,

Around my mother’s neck,

I will grieve,

For the end of our cancer,

The one we call daily life,

Mother Earth,

Kill us with your immune system,

We don’t deserve you.

We owe our best to this top notch lady and never do we come through. Love'd your take on this one and how you put it into words.

Roaches, roaches, everywhere! It's a pity that we are so intelligent that we can fit a computer into the palm of our hand, but we can't figure out how to live in harmony with our provider. We are all like rotten teenagers, that refuse to admit...
