Aging Mother – Breia-Claire Gore
You were caught day-drinking in the shadows of an angel,
with your lips chapped to the pin-point crack of a china cabinet,
the black death plaquing your under eyes like a disease,
knees shaking like the catholic church — it’s the middle ages
sneaking up on you. It is the fall of the romans. And you
are so very tired of the romans.
