Your Mother’s Love was Not a Sign from God

Gracy Boes is a recent college graduate with a degree in creative writing from North Central University in Minneapolis, MN. Her work appeared twice in their literary magazine, The Wineskin. Post-grad she is staying in the Twin Cities frantically seeking a purpose that will also pay the bills. When she isn’t working or writing you can find her napping, playing D&D, or playing little ditties on her purple ukulele.


Your Mother’s Love was Not a Sign from God

when I met your family and they felt like home
that was not the universe saying this home is yours
instead she was saying this is what a home feels like
so that I will recognize mine when it shows up
