Diego’s ninety day follow-up check in


Diego is growing
even though he mainly rests
on his back
this is something I need to change
before we start wrestling

later, he opened his hand
to me
to expose his thumb
and then threw it all
into his mouth
and still had enough room
to yell out a laugh

his first teardropp fell
when he was crying
one cold winter morning
he did not blink
when he swallowed it
but I swear
he winked at me

yesterday
he said one of those
“….gah… gah….” words
letting me know
he is hungry…
hungry for my heart

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
