Label me please

“I hate labels”

I must have said that in a previous life.

Careful what you wish for.

Now I long to be pinned and defined


Please tell me who I am once and for all.

As it is I’m not one thing or another

Not human not mother

Not healthy not sick


Before my blurred lines dissolve into nothing.

So I can stop longing for approval

From sources that never offer it

So go on. Put that sticker on.

Place me in a jar.

My ingredients on the back

At least then I can sit calmly on the shelf

Instead of loose as a lentil or a worse

A nut.
