She rests in Autumn leaves with a smile of spiders;
they've replaced the lullabies and her kiss.
I lie beside her and beg for resurrection,
and I whisper to her heart how much she is missed,

but she wont get warm.
She wont get warm.

Blood has fallen from the family portrait.
The stain- coagulating on the floor.
The hammer fell, but I still feel no justice.
I can’t feel anything any more.

She wont get warm.
She wont get warm.

Father’s is a wolf at the foot of the stairway:
a portrait, hung in web every time mother speaks.
It contrasts everything I thought was worth saving.
Now, vertigo, blood, and the stench are making me weak.

I can still hear her speak,
but she wont get warm.

Outside a church I stood in the rain.
Something is calling me into the wild.
When I feel the sacrilege, I scream at the heavens,
“Mother is the name of god to every child !”
She's in Autumn leaves with her smile of spiders.


Afterward: This song lyric/poem was originally posted sometime before Mother's Day 2009, (April 22 to be precise,) on the Choate Road forum: Lamplight poets. The work is derived from a pair of photographs by
horror artist, Joshua Hoffine, as well as a panel in an illustrated piece entitled Excerpt from Year 5 by Budd Lewis and Jose Ortiz (Warren's Creepy magazine, issue #67). Many will recognize the paraphrased quote taken from William Makepeace Thackeray as it was used by James O' Barr in his illustrated masterpiece: The Crow. Original quote: “Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.”
