Mia Madre

Mia Madre

Mia Madre is special
Mia Madre is the best
She is like this button
She holds everything together

She is like this flower
like the Rose of Sharon
like Nigella Damascena
beautiful and graceful

Mia Madre is like a ballerina
swirling around like in
satin-lined jewelry boxes
doing the splits, even touching her toes

I sometimes wonder how she does this
spreading herself too thin
somersaulting like a dolphin
always charming and buoyant
