I have NO idea where this one came from. I just wrote it the way it came. I'm fine. Really!


i'm born inna rush of blood
that flow like
a river onto the bed
of pain where
my mama lie sweatin and
moanin and
writin mad poems for me--
her baby

who will take over when she
an go on drunkin cruises
while i write
takin my first timid steps
the footprints of a master--
my mama

who is never satisfied
with my words
she slap them out of my pen
screamin in
abject frustration and rage
how could her
daughter not know how to write--
how shameful!

i didn't ask for this job
i wanna
run away an not come back
i'll never
be the poet that she is
why can't she
just leave me the hell alone--

(C) Copy written, 21 February, 2005, by Karla Dorman.

Very good Karla. As you know I too was very misunderstood. May the Lord be with you, and at your side always. With much love, peace, & (((HUGS))), your very dear friend in Wisconsin, and sister in Christ our Lord,
