one baby for me-
The swelling of my belly and then my heart
I could not bear again
another soul to seek safety’s sake for
I could not take upon myself the
survival for this species of beauty and warmth
The walk across fear-daily
tongue in my throat, choke, tears at the t.v.
a child lost, gone, dead,
Only one-only one for me-
If apologies I will have to gift wrap at each
One baby is enough
to save a world.
