Peaks jut to form the “M”

“M” for my maiden mother

Innately they are my mother’s

But now they are mine

My face with the red mother’s lips

In my childish mind I knew my lips

I studied the words and these lips massaged the sounds to speak

But before there were words I kissed

Exploring with countess nerve endings:

A thousand soft puppy ears

The cool smoothness of a doll’s face

The dry warmth of a cotton towel

And before there was sound I still kissed

Womb bound I kissed and was kissed

There in that warm room I inherited my mother’s kiss
