Your mother sew ing 

curtains in the morn ing /
Ears fold ing in and your mother
almost marry ing /
Mom met dad in the back in the
back of back of a rock ‘n’ roll car /
Totaled though parallel and saddened /
On plane rides where you
ruptured as we drank gin
on a roof in Florida and before /
Before that there was and
before before that there was color
little light but color and /
There were fried eggs and car
accidents but no others no curtains
hang ing in your
bedroom / shoulders
out and shudder ing
Ears fold ing in and your mother
almost marry ing /
Us together and not / unconditionally
