I asked for your pain. You gave it to me. It’s time for my ‘what pains you project.’

‘passed down from your mom’

nudge your kids along
to school, from home, through life
keep their nest warm;
it’ll be a long, cold flight

but the kisses you place
upon the yet creased skin of their brow
will serve as a beacon
for them to come home.
