She took a shower
then came downstairs
with just a towel
wrapped around her.

That how I saw
the hickey. It was
a strawberry
on the creamy meadow

just where the moon
of her breast began.

and her eyes went wide.

“You let him brand you?
What are you, a cow?”
“I know, mom, I already
yelled at him.”

I knew they were having sex
but, a hickey?
That was going over
the line.

It must be tough to be a mom, especially now. I don't think I would have survived.

Hickeys, I do remember and covering them up with a turtleneck sweater or scarf LOL!!!
