MOM


She was literally the black sheep.
Her skin darker/different
And they explained her adoption.

She would leave to her seclusion.
With a black board/chalk
And she taught unseen creatures.

Her dreams were to be a teacher.
A mother/sister/daughter
And she taught unseen creatures.

* * *

Against the odds she did school.
One class after the next
And one degree after the next.

Eventually she became a teacher.
A mother/sister/daughter
And more…  Teaching creatures.

Her skin literally became lighter.
Belying her immutabilities
And she taught me this creature.
