Always

five girls in the darkmarching their way through puddles

no picture for this
offhanded remark 

stings bright as two years ago

women always blamed
we will never win

testosterone dominance

it’s always our fault 
does she even know

why sobriety hurts here?

best to stay silent
i chose solo trip

(his absence clings to my soul)

yet–girls are happy
mother’s sacrifice 

comes in beer runs and ice cream

(things they’ll never see)
