Anna M. Guterl

Kind words do kinds of things…

drink my mother said

It will calm your nerves
as though she knew

a glass of wine
even a shot

stoned in her heart
bled through her bible

what you didn’t lose
God doesn’t punish

eat my mother said

it will fill you up
as though she knew

a bowl of rice
even a slice

born from her mouth
stolen from her hands

what you didn’t kill
God doesn’t want
