A Mother’s Abandon (Published online at In Stereo Press: The Audio Zine)

A MOTHER’S ABANDON

A kiss

Upon the forehead.

For good fortune

A prayer.

Her doubtful gaze

At the sleeping baby.

Dampened cheeks

Remorse.

A startling sentiment

Concern.

A glimpse at the exit

The coward wakes.

A shameful departure

Child abandoned.
