mama burdens

the weighty things you schlep to the shower
let the hot water you are grateful for
waterfall on your on-all-day face matra yourself
you are doing all the things. you are doing all
the things right. you are doing all the things you
said you would do. you. are. doing. tell yourself
you cannot fortress your children from racial
absurdities or homophobia. you cannot tell your
children you feel the burden of every om they take
that you are zen & some days namaste is just
a synonym for someone’s bless you.
