My Mom Is Insane

Maybe I’m just like her

But she sees things more clearly than most

At the worst time, right when you need

A little bit of a lie—

She’ll twist the knife

I’m not sure if that makes her nice

But the whole world insists that

Mothers are the ones who are kind

She’s not, and neither am I

I just get annoyed that people are always assuming

My butchness was anything other than

An expression of who I wanted to be like
