March 7 - Matrices

Say this word
sounds like mattresses
but not the comfort
for spine or hip you need
though it is "that which
gives origin or form
to a thing, or which
serves to enclose it".

I think of relatives:
matriarchs and matrons
all given origin or form 
by beds they've made
on which they lie
enclosed between those
episodes of management
so characteristic of their kind.

There is a lovely sense
of inextricable links
where life begins
and ends.
