If You Were My Mommy

angry mom


If you were my mommy

I would have punched you in the face

before the age of eight

No parent should sound like that

while talking about someone

who came from their womb

Not to strangers

not to friends

not to cops

And not out loud

on goddamned speakerphone

at fucking Starbucks

  2. Wow. There are a lot of people who should not be parents. Sorry you had to witness such inhumanity. 😦

    • Thanks, Dani. I think what I witnessed WAS humanity… just not the part we would wish to see. It’s just that the parts we would wish to see are so much quieter about how they go about life. Makes you want to look even closer to find it.
