Mama Said

We hugged curbside,

the Sky Priority sign blazing

behind us.

 

You said: You can do this.

 

(My mind flashed –

you with babies 13 months apart,

one who never slept [I’m so so sorry]

and no handy mechanical pumps.

Traveling baggy-eyed to work and back

home to raise us.)

 

And I believed you.
