    Unknown Girl In A Maternity Ward

    Child, the current of your breath is six days long.
    You lie, a small knuckle on my white bed;
    lie, fisted like a snail, so small and strong
    at my breast. Your lips are animals; you are fed
    with love. At first hunger is not wrong.
    The nurses nod their caps; you are shepherded
    down starch halls with the other unnested throng
    in wheeling baskets. You tip like a cup; your head
    moving to my touch. You sense the way we belong.
    But this is an institution bed.
    You will not know me very long.

    The doctors are enamel. They want to know
    the facts. They guess about the man who left me,
    some pendulum soul, going the way men go
    and leave you full of child. But our case history
    stays blank. All I did was let you grow.
    Now we are here for all the ward to see.
    They thought I was strange, although
    I never spoke a word. I burst empty of you,
    letting you see how the air is so.
    The doctors chart the riddle they ask of me
    and I turn my head away. I do not know.

    Yours is the only face I recognize.
    Bone at my bone, you drink my answers in.
    Six times a day I prize
    your need, the animals of your lips, your skin
    growing warm and plump. I see your eyes
    lifting their tents. They are blue stones, they begin
    to outgrow their moss. You blink in surprise
    and I wonder what you can see, my funny kin,
    as you trouble my silence. I am a shelter of lies.
    Should I learn to speak again, or hopeless in
    such sanity will I touch some face I recognize?

    Down the hall the baskets start back. My arms
    fit you like a sleeve, they hold
    catkins of your willows, the wild bee farms
    of your nerves, each muscle and fold
    of your first days. Your old man's face disarms
    the nurses. But the doctors return to scold
    me. I speak. It is you my silence harms.
    I should have known; I should have told
    them something to write down. My voice alarms
    my throat. 'Name of father-none.' I hold
    you and name you bastard in my arms.

    And now that's that. There is nothing more
    that I can say or lose.
    Others have traded life before
    and could not speak. I tighten to refuse
    your owling eyes, my fragile visitor.
    I touch your cheeks, like flowers. You bruise
    against me. We unlearn. I am a shore
    rocking off you. You break from me. I choose
    your only way, my small inheritor
    and hand you off, trembling the selves we lose.
    Go child, who is my sin and nothing more. read more »

    Children's Party

    May I join you in the doghouse, Rover?

    To entertain each tiny guest. My conscience now I've left behind me, read more »

    A Sad Child
