On Mother’s Day I Wonder

2
It’s Mother’s Day and I wonder
where my children are wherever they wander
what my children are doing and if they wonder
at all about their mother
just because it’s Mother’s Day.

the baby in the tub (poem)

3

the baby in the tub sat

and the mother of

the baby in the tub

took a call and sat

at her phone to chat

while the baby in the tub sat

and the mother stayed on the phone

left the baby in the tub alone

left the baby in the tub to drown

and the baby in the tub drowned alone

while the mother sat to chat

on the phone
