Mother's Day

"Clafouti," she says.
Not cake, dimpled with cherries.
Not bread, sweetly dusted.
Which sounds
As artificial,
As contrived
As this--
Sitting here, across the table
From a woman who can't see
The cake in clafouti
Or the person in me.

Comments are always welcome, unless you are going to be mean, in which case you can go straight to hell.

Please leave at least some form of name so I don't get all paranoid and think you are a stalker or my mother.
