Poem #9

May 10th

LAMENT

do you think of me

today

son

do I cross your mind

should you find yourself

at someone else’s

celebration tea

do you take a sec

to wonder about me

and murmur

yes, I used to have one

but I turned my heart away

from all of that

faux normality

for reasons only known

to me


does your slender finger

maybe

hover over SEND

some message

to a mother

that might start

the end

to grief

to heartache and

to misery

or is that

only me

who thinks of you

today.
