I've got enough work
to fill three days,
but here I sit,
mooning over the photo book.
Mama, I wish you'd look up
from your prize houseplants and chat a bit.
Help me figure out how to go on --
my two big boys gone to war --
one on a ship, one in a cockpit --
my little girl suddenly a woman, and lovesick --
the youngest just trying to find his way,
figuring out where he fits in all this.
