Decorum

I was an only child
easy-going
content
benevolent to my fellow creatures
both human and animal

***

mother respected that in me
and left me to my own devices
to entertain myself
in my own space

***

if however
I unwittingly strayed
from acceptability
her demeanor changed

***

when she gave
one of her infamous looks
it sufficed

***

a 180
into
 acceptability
within moments
is by no means
an exaggeration

scold

Some are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same, and most mothers kiss and scold together. – Pearl S. Buck
