A Talk with My Mother

At the table, we sit, eating
fried steak and salad and brownies.
Our eyes seldom meet
as we talk of Ruth and my own failures.
I thank her for giving me time
to write poetry

                          and criticism.
She understands how night
controls the hands of the
crucified Lucifer from Texas.
