Baby Blues

Jessi Marcinek because i said so

“You’re so patient with her.”

She has noticed me with Sam.




“It’s the Zoloft” 
I laugh and wish I were joking.

My new friend on the bus looks annoyed 
“Or it’s just that you’re a good mother.” 

I laugh again, but there is darkness there

Behind what I have not said; what Sam and I both know.

 I shiver because I know that yes, it is the Zoloft.

And without it, I am not a good mother.
