I don’t want to hunker down in Staten Island
Or be on bed rest
Or buy big clothes
Or rush to alter with a gown and a groom and a promise
With rice raining on me
I don’t want to be folk like my mother was folk.
Children growing out of her hairdo.
(from The Quickening, by Allison Whittenberg, published in The Radvocate).
