Teeth/Mother

Shuffling steps Leaving toenails etchings In the dirt With each movement I stare at the hide satchels Fastened to belt and hip The jingle jangle Bone to bone clacking I shiver My babe cries Sleep will not come for her My Estrella Dark hair falling to knees Seasoned generously with glittering gray "The mother" they… Continue reading Teeth/Mother
