Sue

Your mother
is unable to sit up
any longer
and is stroking
your long black hair
at thirteen
and telling you
what death is
and isn’t
how it is all
going to be
okay
now it is spring
right outside
the front door
outside
all the windows
please go outside
and play
and sit
in the flowers
as children
must do
to continue
being
children
