by Jillian Adams
You are unthreaded as well as
Well spoken for.
Beautiful droplets of your children
Land in the white womb
Of your full body.
You don’t fret over
The small stuff,
Such as births and deaths.
You weep, however,
Over the importance of spaghetti sauce.
But you are just a white,
Unkempt mound of snow on a large
And vast sloping hill…
What would you know about such motherly things?
Yet, this does not mean you lack superior intelligence or beauty.
A collection of poetry that reflects on humanity, love, loss, nature, injustice, self, and other themes.
