For The Mama (III)

The Empress

“Key Words: Venus; beauty; love; motherliness;
femininity; wisdom; connection between spirit and matter;
inner and outer wealth.” (page 20, Ziegler, Gerard. Tarot: Mirror Of The Soul)

cleaning bottles, changing booty,
nursing baby, feeling loopy
the lists spiral around
let’s drink another round for the mama

sleepless nights, babies cry
bellies big, shrink with time
relationships fall down
let’s drink another round for the mama

flap, flap
the angels are here
cooling tempers with the air of their wings
surely heaven will forever be open
to all the mamas who were not broken
by the heartache of love

no shower for mama grime
the clock ticks speeding time
the lists spiral around
let’s drink another round for the mama

baby’s tied to mama’s hip
and she just wants some wine to sip
and laughter the only sound
let’s drink another round for the mama
flap, flap
the angels are here
cooling tempers with the air of their wings
surely heaven will forever be open
to all the mamas who were not broken
by the heartache of love

mama has a gentle touch
her mind’s gone soft, can’t remember much
but her feet are on the ground
let’s drink another round for the mama

mama can be a kind queen
but when her crown falls off you can hear her scream
no peace to be found
let’s drink another round for the mama
