This is one of my poems from the Poem-a-Day Chapbook Challenge. I haven’t managed a poem a day, nor do I think I’ve created enough for a chapbook, but some is better than none, and this one is better than none. So. This poem was written in response to the Day 9 prompt.
“The Other Mother”
The Other Mother
Lurks in the shadow of her twin,
Biding her time,
Waiting to pounce,
And devour her unsuspecting young.
