Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood

Treaded treasure palaces,
trailers pulling pleasure
pomps of dig and carry.

Let’s all be overrolled by oil
tankers, grinding barrel-bellies
of concrete, trash.

Open door, climb in the back
nestle in pallets cozy as boxcars
or climb the tractor’s throne:

pull gears shift blades spin
push buckets into earth,
lift out its beauty.
