Mother’s Day Poem 2013

This is why we never could

have moved to the ocean

in my dreams my mother’s quirky fears

unplug electric blankets 

even though at bedtime

I do not worry about fires and strangulation

My mother’s worried eyes 

watching the news

as gentle waves gobble up all the islands

with us inside
