In the poem we discover that the narrator's parents died and that she was haunted by several heated arguments between her parents over their finances. We get the sense that the daughter seems to be on her mother’s side as she used words like “old liar” and “old dead man” to describe her father.

She doesn’t realize what she's doing because she doesn’t know what to do with herself and her husband because the baby is what making them be together.
