Forgive Us Our Trespasses

What place do your children give you?

They will allow you to trespass on their
green gardens but wait for you to go
because they tell their friends their secrets
Not you.

You are the beginning for them and they want
you behind but left there. Doing nothing
in particular but not rocking the boat.
Don’t do

Anything outrageous until they are middle-aged
then they won’t mind because it will reflect well
to have an interesting foremother. Basically it’s a
No go area

Parents are increasingly obsolete, dumb dinosaurs
Made to be stuffed
