The award speech

I wish for him
happiness and health
a good head
on his shoulders
high school graduation
a strong back.

My shopping list of sensibleness
is infinite yet beneath
this mountain of prudence
I hear a quiet intractable voice
squeak out a hope
that I can ignite
some rare talent
and the award speech
he mentions me
the mothering I did
so clever and tender
along the way.
