Poem: 'Mum' by James Kenneth Blaylock

by James Kenneth Blaylock

I do not belong to
anyone, out there

I am just right here, breathing
up all the night air, stargazing

truthfully, I have a shoebox
filled with so many beautiful memories

yet, nowhere will I find you,
as you’ve swiped my tears

it’s the antithesis of love and hate,
midnight and mid-morning, fateful

is it fatal to want more than
another total of sums, mum
