    Remember that every son had a mother
    whose beloved son he was,
    and every woman had a mother
    whose beloved son she wasn’t.

    Loving feels lonely in a violent world,
    irrelevant to people burning like last year’s weed
    with bellies distended, with fish throats agape
    and flesh melting down to glue.
    We can no longer shut out the screaming
    That leaks through the ventilation system ...
    —Marge Piercy (b. 1936)
