J. P. Murphy Playground

Across from children’s playground

Twin Peaks loom in the silence.

Symbols of motherhood.

Raw, exposed, scary.

Making you feel you haven’t given birth.

There’s a cleavage in your breast, longing in your mouth.

In this park for toddlers,

Nurse your courage to rise above your heartbreak.
