Mother, daughter, grandsons, living under one roof.....



Our boundaries collapse

into each other

like a house of cards,

mother, daughter

under one roof.,

raising two children.




the roles bleed into each other.

Control yo-yos,

resentment builds

and spills over

into the landscape.

We scramble to reclaim

and repair the sense of order.
