Lane Graves, In Memoriam

Lane Graves, In Memoriam
By Krista Mallo 6/18/2016

It’s been a week, little one.
All across America
Deep within the gated communities, inside the two-car garaged, white picket-fenced, ADT-secured, single family homes,
Puffy-eyed, half-sleeping, middle class mommas awake in a cold sweat panic,
blindly shuffle through the darkness-
Listening intently at the just barely open bedroom door–
the door that encloses behind itself sheets, bed ruffles, self-sticking wall decorations-
All images of Mickey and Minnie and Goofy and Pluto-
Just to hear the half-silent sleeping sigh of the baby that so easily could have been you.
All across America, middle class mommas hold your Momma tight, hug her, will never leave her, suddenly and forever love her.
