Only one baby

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

birthday’s glee

One baby is enough

to save a world.
