Today is the day when poetry happened [Feb. 19th, 2015|11:26 am]

"Pay for it if you have to,"
my mother said to me
the day she heard the news.

Never mind I did not have the money
nor would I even know where to find
a woman who would accept said payment.

All I could think was that
my parents would rather I break the law
than be happy.

***Note: this was an incident in 1997, but for some reason this doesn't pop into my head until just now. Things are, of course, quite different now.
