My mother

My mother
is a verb

While sleeping
as a young
child, I would
often awake
only to find Mom
working
on tasks left undone
during regular hours

I would find her
sewing
ironing or folding
freshly-washed
laundry
while quietly
watching
midnight shows
to keep her company

When she
would sleep
I did not know
