Tonight was a Feeling

What your mother tells you

now

in time

you will come to know.

–Mitsuye Yamada

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Every time you move, you have a reason.

When you don’t, you know to cry.

You live in your movement, in the push to stand and in the easing down. I watch from the doorway. What I feel is tenderness.

I push the plastic duck closer to the edge so you can reach it. I want the world to be easy for you.
