Oh, please. My lovely boy.
Whom I birthed sixteen years ago.
So brilliant and beautiful,
your words shine and shiver like a ruby in a tide pool.
BUT DO YOU EVER SHUT UP?
I know that face, when she’s had enough
and just wishes I’d give her peace.
But I hope she knows
this venting of thought, word, and soul
makes me love her the more.
How she does it, I’ll never understand,
that mother there with her boy
in the produce aisle.
I’ve not heard him pause for breath once,
yet she stands ready,
answer and ear undaunted.
