Asher Black - Magnificatyour hands outstretched

where is your face
distorted with rage

a knife to my neck
my head forced down in the tub

is there not once that you held me
other than mock murder

I remember
only wire monkeys

poised paralyzed in stone
defenseless as statues

Mother Church praises motherhood
so I will call you Mary

in that name there is no pain
but the loss of a son
