Except Perhaps Herself

The young mother,
cloistered at McDonalds,
returned hastily
from the bathroom,
appearing anxious and
unhappy
before she entered
the vivid play area
where her children ran
and squealed
and occasionally
looked for her,
but upon entering the loud,
echoing room
she transformed herself
instantly into an angel,
smiling and reassuring
everyone,
except perhaps herself.
