maternal grief (reworked old post)

blessed-mother-mary-and-jesus-cecilia-brendel

Retreating backs

Tore eyes

Heart ached

Inside

…later..

Cradling phone

Knitted tone to tone

Pain needling

Blood’s flow

What’s with maternal

Hearts? Years ago cut

Umbilical’s phantoms

continue assertions

Stiff upper lip slackened

Is it a sign of imminent

Meltdown of carefully

Cultivated fronts?

…Sighed..

Getting tired

from being constantly

brave, wearing

masks
