In Mom’s swinging wicker baskets.
Debris in the system.
A breakdown was a given.
You don’t realize the mess you’re in.
The oily residue
Won’t ever wash off, but you try anyway.
A life shot to pieces, then put on display.
And the pain refuses to go away.
It lingers so long, you know it’s here to stay.
