Ode to momma

She sells items of meager income, such as; Soap-flakes, peanuts, soft drinks, bakeries. Not to make profit but at least rich enough To feed the family of gold. my mummy’s little outlet, is the bachelor’s pride. The young men, stride in and out at will to the little corner, to make themselves fit for the kitchen, borrow for the belly, save for the day, and pay for the morrow. Its chokes to notice You re gone Red is still the Colours of the blood In our heart eyes Though skin varies Love you Momma. The blackness Of your skin Is it strength 2ND PLACE WIN I Can't Breathe Richard Lamoureux 5/29/2020
