Birth, II

 

Does it matter

that no one asked

or did they

with spiritual tongue

of transparent precipice

that on this fateful day

fetal-safe sleep

against uterine walls

shall abruptly awaken

into crimson pain.

 

Screams of an umbilical voice

entrenched in

placenta-liquid deafness

will pierce alien air

with infant rejection.

 

And a cold world shall meet

this expectant ejection

into clinical hands

of grasping strangers ~

 

our first step and we

risk everything

walking into flesh.

~ ~
