>Do The Math…She Did


one drinking mother
two incapable parents
plus inattention
multiplied by abuse
equals one
minus one corpus callosum
plus several seizures
add one shunt
and dozens times dozens
of social miscues
divided by wry smiles
plus one pure voice
of song
add two new parents
plus patience and hope
go on and you do the math
