Lately mom guilt has driven me to verse about broken hearts and felon interviews with an 8 month old.
I therefore propose “Mom gulit: The Poetry Contest.”
Entrants are free to write about fur or human babies. Dads in throes of parental guilt are free to write too. I haven’t decided the prize for the winner, only the constraints of the challenge: Haiku.
The best advice about mom guilt came from my co-worker in the form of “F*ck that you gave them life.”
Ahh, feeling much better now, but I still want to have a poetry contest.
