Retreating backs
Tear up eyes
Heart aches
Inside

Cradling phone
Knitting tone to tone
Pain needles
Blood’s flow

What’s with this motherly
Heart of mine, years ago cut
Umbilical phantoms
Assertions

Stiff upper lip slackens
Is this a sign of imminent
Meltdown of carefully
Cultivated front?

Am getting tired
Of being brave
Wearing pseudo
Masks
