Spring Christian Festival

The first time I felt left out
I was five
and the only kid who didn’t find
an Easter egg.

I cried
and called my mother
to pick me up.

Twenty years later my mother yells at me
for being left out of society
since I didn’t graduate college,
I don’t have a corporate job,
and I still live under her roof.


I leave my mother’s house
and walk to where
the eggs were hid.

I still can’t find any.

I cry
and call my mother
to pick me up.
