Aside

only a parent

i have no son
i have no daughter
don’t you dare
ever tell me
only a parent
would understand

i am a son
my sister, a daughter
and our mother
was a mother
and our father
was a dad

and just because
you don’t know what you
cost your mother
don’t pretend
that i don’t know

i understand
a child can understand
a man
a woman
and there are “parents”
who don’t
