Mother’s Day

Mom and babyExercise

The devil of the

open day

to sweat or not to sweat

that was never the question,

though it was today –


Each foot

slamming the sidewalk

each leg

a lead weight

heavier than the next


For them –

my three

earnest little beasts –

I can not dissolve underground


You had to go

but I am here

to take care of them

and love them


and laugh at the ridiculous



they say.
