Celebrating Mother's Day May 9, 2010


Mother’s Day
a woman cries
for her stillborn child



Mother’s Day
the daughter takes
her mother’s place



Mother’s Day
not for women
who hate kids



Mother’s Day
In VItro babies
paraded in strollers



Mother’s Day
one dozen certified
sperm-free eggs



Mother’s Day
the Easter bunny
paints my eggs red



Mother’s Day
first the baby
then the stretch marks



Mother’s Day
your husband
doesn’t wear the pants suit



Mother’s Day
you better not forget
or else…



you don’t have to be married
to be one



3:40 a.m.
insomnia listening
to mom’s coughing









to the top
