street family
on a single mat …
each time
we buy another bed

the gap between us widens

in my pretend house
as a child –
just me, single mother
to a long row of dolls

for two …

I can’t climb

feet off
the ground
the little things
in life

to carry the weight
of my father's luggage
his mole hills
now mountains

    The mirage
of tall cliffs
across the bay
she tells me she too
is easily overwhelmed
