Brenda’s Momma Got a Baby

Posted: August 15, 2010 in Uncategorized

Can you just for tonight?
Where else will he go…

This time I’ll pay you
Next time you won’t

Just these two days
turn into a lifetime
of weekends and nights

It’s no longer hers
His grandpa his mother
His mother his sister

A family tree
with branches tiwsting
a seed growing from a branch

The fruits of her labor
The next generation
Neglected by the party frogs

And the raisers raised once
and cared for twice multiplied
Great grandmother or mother

Tree’s knots make branches fall
And these children cry
Just as hard as their quote parents
