MOTHER  REPLIES

 

I do not hate you now

for your splenic verse

words have no meaning here

I use them one more time

to temper yours.

 

I never felt for you

the hate you express,

 I thought of you as dross

from golden age

in a memory I’ve lost,

my own life the dregs

of a full glass of wine

drunk before your time.

I must have loved you once,

begin, “my darling daughter”.
