sorrowing mother—
a bright aurora of grief
stains the northern sky
~~ ~~ ~~
What can blunt the grief
of mothers losing their sons
to ravenous graves?
~~ ~~ ~~
Grappling with her grief,
her world spins out of control—
perhaps she is drunk.
~~ ~~ ~~
mother of the dead
lethargic in her sorrow
morning bread unbaked
