Birthing the Newborn


pre-conception

blank white blank

slim sleek smooth slide
of unimagined pages

each turning in
Planck time

discretely sinuous
flicker-book seamless

the tabula rasa
of this neonate

blotted by feeling
inky sensation
seeping

pulsing breath pushing
it comes
with a scream

through the opening
a baby poem

fleshing out

ungrown

looking up at you
from the page
with big unseeing eyes

blank black blank
