Momma is coughing next door
Reminded me the cold was kicking hard this year.
And how you could easily catch a flu
I thought I felt it too.
Momma said I was so selfish.
That I didn’t listen to her thinkings at night
All those sleeplessness, waiting for me to come home.
I was convinced she was right.
Momma just found out that I smoked.
She was outrageous as if provoked
What if she knows that I’m queer?
Will I still be needed here?
Momma is pretending her pills work for God’s sakes
Guess it doesn’t fool since I am still wide awake
Thinking about me and my momma
And how much longer we could take.
