No…. not yet
Because mom,
I forgot
I am human
Can we talk about
something else?
Sure, mom, I would love
To hear about
The food you made
for dinner
last night

The author's comments:
My friend has really tough parents and every word is loaded when they have a discussion. I tried to portray this tension in the poem.
