New Motherhood

By Krystal Lyons

“There’s your funny friends,” she says,

“Then there’s your friends with kids.”

and I want to swear

I want to promise

that I am still me.

I may have been

split open

poured into

someone else

but I still have poems that live in me

I have stories and dreams

jokes and fear and a rage that seethes

I am still me.

Fuck you for losing interest.
