My Mother Demanded Gratitude1
Josephine Yu
 
 
Bone-ache signaled growth, 
 height a sure thing. 
 
Hiccups2? The lungs' desire 
 to fulfill3 their contract with the body. 
 
Stubbed toe, throbbing4 funny bone, 
 leg of pins and needles --
 
even a toothache, a blessing: 
 "If it hurts, it's not dead." 
 
Any pain better than none, better 
 than the nerves' apathy5
 
And so she bubbled with laughter 
 when the car window closed 
 
on my fingers or a camera swinging 
 from her chest clocked my forehead 
 
as she picked me up, her joy boiling 
 over my pained but breathing body.
