WALLFLOWER MAMA

Do I still exist
behind perfectly rounded cheeks
tiny hands and feet
soothing scents and snuggly skin?
Have I become
an item on my own wish list:
a baby wrap, a pacifier, a feeder,
a portable changing station,
the latest trendy yet safe transportation?

Should I venture to reclaim my territory
or settle into this tapestry?
A majestic trophy case,
my greatest creation
on display.
