Conversations With My Mother – 1: Apology

This is what I’d most like to tell you:
        I am you no longer.
I have grown – in interesting and difficult ways – into
a woman of my own.
I have thought, reasoned … and at times

Nightmare Scenario

Sometimes the words come a-spilling:
tripping over themselves as they
empty out of my mouth.
And it is imperative that I
