Pauses

Motherhood
it seems
is a series of pauses

Food left here
there
Spoonfuls of rice
or chicken bits
everywhere

I am learning to be OK
with the messes I leave along
the way

including but not limited to
the booger Bedazzled shirts I am in
and crumby pants I take off at bedtime

As I lay down to sleep,
I know it will be no surprise come
morning
when my shoes are piled here and
there
and my hair goes another day unwashed

Because it seems
Motherhood is a series of

pauses
