waiting by the train station
in the dark car like a private eye
two tall buildings in my view
on one building’s LED screen the time ticks by
- - - - -7:57 pm - - - - - - - - - 7:58 pm - - - -
the other building spells out L O V E
then shows flashing concentric hearts
I feel the way months flatten
not that serious at all
I keep thinking about the
corny prescription from JJ
love is a revolution
the only thing worth decorating
yourself and the world with
love needs action
it starves on words alone
Auntie calls flustered about Mom
but expresses zero opinion
I’m missing information
gaps in my ability to understand
loyalty, denial, protection
or is it just love?
is it just family?
I’m so far away
Do NOT call my family
acting like a teenager
going home to her mom
locking herself in the bathroom
yelling till she is horse
You’re welcome!!Spoke with my
mom this morning and she was calm
and collected. She baked a cake and
was wondering through the garden.
Mom said she was really angry and
upset last night. Mom just listen
and let her vent.
My mom? Your mom?
My family? Your family?
Mom Mom Mom Mom
baking a cake
wondering through the garden
