Mother vs. Jillian

My mother wouldn’t like Jillian.
Jillian knows what she wants.
Excepting my mother, Jillian is the most stubborn woman I know.

Neither she nor I care what Mother might say.
Mother doesn’t know what Jillian brings to the table.
But I do.

  1. I like the hidden something in this poem and I have been thinking about what Jillian might be bringing to the table- like your mother I don’t know and that is the whole excitement this poem brings.
    Is there more ?

  2. Loved the way you interpreted this prompt. That old age battle between mother and ‘that woman’ is captured so well in just 42 words.
