Dear dear flesh of mine, spirit of mine,
Two words and an exclamation point. Is that all you can spare your mother?
I need, need, need you!
There i've failed. My resolve to independ from you has collapsed.
You spend two words, a punctuation point and not even a visit?
Don't you miss her? This huddled puddle of mother? The shape that gave you shape? Fed you, warmed you, waned over you?
Good God, I've never been afraid like this.
An even more frightening exclamation when the exclaimant is an atheist.
