Coping With These Synapses

what do they place in the mother’s arms immediately after labor

~~~~~ except expectation ~~~~~

to… grow, to think, to move, to be

but (or) not

mothers like mine

me, the wondering non-stop

when the synapses fail to fire aptly

lost and bouncing

avoiding the word ” crazed ” here, on purpose

when the chemicals align not

lines upon lines upon lines askew

does this mean…

my mother’s arms were empty?
