Mother’s Day Call with Some Bitterness

a poem

Tomorrow I’ll call. Say all the right
things in the right tone and end with
an honest, “I love you mom.”

But the salt in the my ten year old
self’s divorce memory wound still stings
and he won’t forgive so easy.



From haiku to hefty memoirs - poems, stories and essays that break through the bullshit. Looking for pieces that go far beyond cliché to uncover a new realm of possibilities. Other Doors features writing that leaves the reader with genuine congenital reactions.
