Meditation on motherhood, as inspired by Marlene Nourbese Philip

Mother
Mother Earth
Mother figure
Double mother
Am I a mother
Without a cervix or a womb
My children out of paper

mother
mommy
mommy dearest
where did it go wrong

mummy
sorry
i’m sorry
i’m dying
i’m withering
it’s worse than before
never been his bad

mama
mamyte
aš nebežinau
ar sugebėsiu
aš bandau

maman
je tire du sang
ça n'aide pas

mommy
mamma
mutter
moder?
are you there
