O D

basted in it before birth

taught to sniff it out during developmental exchange

mama fed it to me through her own cravings

disenfranchised  but undaunted…from this is where it is engraved

on my navel from her umbilical cord

she danced when she was told she was just another drop

from acidic rains but did she listen….ain’t

and even though she sang in low keys as not to make herself the star

she was

she is

she’s mine

and we are…I am over dosed on it and here I will simmer
