i know now

what my mother felt

when blood was shed

in her mid years

and she cried out

the grief of mothers feeling the grief of mothers

 

she cried out

to the deaf ears

of neighbors

they were annoyed

by her compassion

she was a

radical a

rabble rouser a

madwoman who didn't know

any better than to

cry for children on the

other side of the world
