Mother

Now I understand
why your owl eyes peeked in
at night,
and why you woke
from gravity to wonder where
we’ve been.

Now I understand
why you held those ivory tears
within,
and why you held the
paper walls up with resolute
precision.

Now I understand
why you broke the lock holding
our youth,
and why you gave us life
though you knew we would betray
you.

I couldn’t understand
the colors of your love but now…
I do.
