MYSTERIES

There must be answers.

Yet, daughter, I can’t explain

why you won’t eat lunch.

 

BATH

The screams of pure rage.

You thrash as if set aflame.

It’s only shampoo.

 

CAT

The toddler hugs you.

Feline eyes call out to me,

“What fresh hell is this?”

 

SILENCE

The talking has stopped.

Perhaps the kids are asleep.

No. They plot my doom.

MORNING

I have heard the call.

The demands will soon begin.

Crap. The kids are up.

 

SCENTS

I detect a smell.

The power is beyond me.

Someone has poopies.

 

DRAMA

A storm has fallen.

Her rage is great and brutal.

We’re out of yogurt.

 

LOVE

You are my sweet child.

I love to make your smile grow.

Sure. I’ll sniff your feet.
