the smell of shit this Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is around the corner
and i can’t tell if my sadness
or my guilt over feeling sad
is heavier.

but i do know
the festering smell of shit rises into my mouth
and makes me gag

and all the roses and tulips in the world
will not make that smell go away.
