Mother’s Day

Nana sat, hunched and sick, reverse-flowing the tears that just seemed to never end. She gasped hard and tight, chest constricted and felt the tiny (thousand) pricks along her arms and shoulders. It couldn’t be, she thought, it just couldn’t be.

Carefully, she took out the long, thin, death-dealing tube and saw the positive sign. It was clear (as day) and stung her all mottled and achy inside. There was no escaping, and her mind raced and convulsed with impossible ragged convolutions.

She couldn’t be a mother.

Not now (not ever).

She wasn’t fit. Even Nana (the thinner, prettier, self-determined one) was more capable. And just think: she wasn’t even sure who was the father.
