Day 5 – Mother Dearest (Golden Shovel poem)

“Their relationship consisted

In discussing if it existed.”

― Thom Gunn

 

The woman wondered if their

Teenaged daughter was in a relationship.

The evidence before her consisted

Of nights out with “a friend” in

The city, and hushed phone calls discussing,

Well, whatever made Angela giggle. If

There WAS a boy – she was almost sure of it –

She’d make him wish he never existed.
