I will never call you on your birthday
but I bet right about now Tracy is making you laugh
as the candles on the cake illuminate your face
I know you will smile.

I wonder what you’ll wish for
a new pair of shoes
a better job
a man.

I am at the bottom of your list
but I will still waste my birthday wish on you
every year anyways.

Happy Birthday, Mom.
