The Mother

I forgot about the four aspects
of the mother
That mahakali will come in with
her fire and tear you down
really fast
so fast
your head and body and soul
Would suddenly be splitting in fours
no direction
no faith
no sound thinking
egoistic suffering
weeping in isolation
for days
and then
with one decision
your simple decision of
The fire dies down
the smoke begins to clear
the haze starts to lift
and we are left with
a calm, beautiful light
a freedom we couldn’t remember
a faith that we thought we’d never shake
an understanding that we are at her whim
and a solemn recognition that
she will
not take
care of us
