My Mother’s Work

you dont know this but
ive read everything
youve ever written

your stories are filled
with raven haired beauties
being chased and running
ultimately, of course, they win.
they are your protagonists
they all look like you
as a younger woman

its like you cant imagine
a heroine who looks like me
or even a supporting character

the only blondes in your stories
are little babies.

the only blondes in your stories
are hungry and they’re crying

except for that stripper,
but im pretty sure
she dyes her hair

anyways, here’s hoping.
she wasnt my favorite
character.
