II Poetry Contest: Mother of the Bride

by ggspalter

To answer your question why my mother wasn’t at my wedding…

She has been kidnapped, and I don’t know where she is.

She has been kidnapped by conspiracies.

They have taken her and are holding her ransom until homeland security comes and arrests me because I have stolen her food, forks, pillows, plants, and wind chimes.

I don’t know.

She has been kidnapped by paranoia. It keeps her awake for days so no one will kill her dog or give her shots that make her woozy so they can take her T.V. She sleeps in her car so none of us or those voices will track her down. 

I don’t know where.

She is gone.

I don’t know 

Where she is.

So, To answer your question why my mom wasn’t at my wedding:

She has been kidnapped. 

I don’t know where she is. 

I don’t know 

if or when 

she will ever 

be returned.
