Momma

Momma
Why’d you make my eyes so wide
Why’d you teach my mouth the words
The names of things that I could never have
Why
Did you show me beyond my borders
I will live and die in this cell
Tortured by my knowledge of Polaris
Taught, the names of stars I cannot see
Momma
How could you be so mean
