Minced Meat (2021)

“Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.”

William Makepeace Thackeray

Passively pliable.

False prophets singing from rooftops.

Take them at their *word.

Words without action.

Words eviscerate a soul.

Words can’t move mountains.

Fragile hearts and minds.

Wiser words have never been spoken.


She wrote.

Everything but the full kitchen sink.

Tossed the baby out with the bath water.

An American Minced Meat pie.
