Another mom

We walk down the steep path to the beach
and you ask me
if I could carry everything
in our house

I say no
I would slip for sure

not even with dad
you agree
and you describe
how we would die
how you’d have to find
another mom
on the beach
tell her where you lived
and what things you liked to do

I say
yes but you wouldn’t find
one quite as good as me
don’t you think

you agree

and then
a few steps later
you say

Colleen is very good.
