For A College Student, With Her Mom, Who’s in a Hurry to Know Who She Should Be

The forked and bending metallic in the stream;
the myriad ample tearing seams and all this
laid against the creening of debts piling
pay and where and what and why delay

but stop this foolishness parading past,
Disney automaton ambitions
wrapped in collegiate shrink jackets–

and know your problems are bigger than that–
of love and loss and rodents past

all the human brimming cups
and juicing breakfasts
to fill young stomachs while digestion lasts.

And if words fail the test
let go fastnow them
relent troubles

sent heavens.
