Ma Noon


Too soon, she
notices that her children
(wisps of cloud,
fallen stars)
have left her loose
in this bright sky.

Why not try
to gather them home
with sunspilled silken
spider web net? And yet

she knows it’s
to let them


Inspired by my Shawna.

    I know I will get there. But I’m not there yet. What I DO feel is that “she knows zits” line. Oh my word, my nose is killin’ me.
