Narcissistic Mother

Our mother belongs to everyone and everyone belongs to her.
The sacrifice made for our birth; a debt we owe to her.

Leader, teacher, carer? In truth, she’s always needing to be fed.
To numb the aching in her heart, conceit it fills her head.

Deflecting judgements on her, pride always conquers love.
For there’s always that special someone, to kiss her regal glove.

Always right and always defended, she smiles and laughs and jokes.
Motherhood’s for losers so, by command, we shan’t be common folk!

Sufjan Stevens – Romulus

Sufjan Stevens – Romulus

Once when our mother called,
She had a voice of last year’s cough.
We passed around the phone,
Sharing a word about Oregon.
When my turn came, I was ashamed.
When my turn came, I was ashamed.

Once when moved away,
She came to Romulus for a day.
Her Chevrolet broke down,
We prayed it’d never be fixed or be found.
We touched her hair, we touched her hair.
We touched her hair, we touched her hair.

When she had her last child,
Once when she had some boyfriends, some wild.
She moved away, quite far.
Our grandpa bought us a new VCR.
We watched it all night, we grew up in spite of it.
We watched it all night, we grew up in spite of it.

We saw her once last fall,
Our grandpa died in a hospital gown.
She didn’t seem to care,
She smoked in her room and colored her hair.
I was ashamed, I was ashamed of her.
I was ashamed, I was ashamed of her.
I was ashamed, I was ashamed of her.
I was ashamed, I was ashamed of her.
