Mother’s Day

One of those toad strangler storms.
Can’t see. Lakes filling up
on the front lawn. I’m
swept into the bayou, in pajamas,
a stick of balsa bobbing for help.
Warnings about snakes, moccasins.
Front face. See our house,
know I’m not getting there any time
soon. Shit. Mother’s Day and
you were going to take me out.
