To her


I am an unruly child.


Disturbing her


every morning


as she sweeps


the parking lot


her children


vanished


with the stretch of years...


So now


her sweeping gestures


across the littered asphalt


are for some


extended family:


fleet of foot


out of touch


but still...


in need


of a


mother.

Ah, perfecto! I love the feel of this work! Makes me feel like I'm there watching it happen! And even though I already have a mother, I wouldn't be opposed to being this woman's child. That's how this poem makes me feel. Wonderful, wonderful work!!!
