Poetry

Cursive

Unfolding an old note from my mother

inked on a scrap, hurriedly yet purposeful

I trace over every line like canals in the paper

The curves of my letters are starting to look like hers

just like the curves of my hips

Genetics, maybe

or the inheritance of

the weight of the words that weren’t ours to bear
