Miracle Worker

in an overgrown and murky corner lot
shadowed with reality
a Mother works wonders

chicken hawk Love
face down in a nightmare
ignoring the smell of denial,
her talent was her gift

guilt was not an option
no longer to hear the tears of a torn soul,
she ran from the ropes to the street
to deliver more than her world could offer

at days end, she counts the change
pennies to most, salvation to her
as the stench wraps her head, she drives
homeward to feed the one she would kill for

with tears steering her, she drives
the ruined reminder barely enough to carry her
a message of truth tattooed to the bumper

Suck A Dick, Save A Child
