Mother’s Day 2019

my hands reek of bleach
rubbed raw with all the washing from the weekend

stomach viruses do not mince words
and they lack in subtlety.

but with all the saccharine messages of gratitude and heroism
heralded in by the day,

being surrounded by vomit and diarrhea
was much more fitting for me anyways.
