I saw the best moms of my generation destroyed by Mum-Mums, Ergo’ed up in their lululemons,/ dragging themselves through Starbucks at dawn . . .
(in our small cabin by the bay my mother steeps) / leaves of wild mint / I ride her hip / through my first year
Once the suitcase was empty, / the clasp wouldn’t close again.
she can tie her hair and string up so quickly / faster than most braiders I know/ I want her stories to slip through me that way
You were my midwife as you lambed that first Spring.
