Poetisk Podcast #12: Kære mor (Dear Mom)
Dear Mom, 2050
I’m recording this for you again in the hope that
you will wake up one day
then I’ll tell you everything
you can move in
here with us
I cleaned up for you
the house is as it was when they fetched you
Every day I think about calling you
I forget that you aren’t here
a little further down the road
lives a man whose wife
has also been fetched
