Mother’s First Love

Mother’s First Love

I couldn’t compete with your favorite
I never had a chance, mother
This love of yours came first always
Despite the consequences

I don’t speak of my sibling
This other love came first
I don’t speak of my father
He could only be second

You wonder why I don’t visit often
Your other love keeps me away
Why should I choose to dine –
With your cancerous smoke?
