the silent wail

A poem about seeking a return to the pre-birth stage on account of immense emotional pain


no womb to take your tears to

the hurt, above you – you, only a petite full-grown

from a premature fetal fist – forced to let it lurk inside

the three hundred ninety grams of it all

as well as the mere seven pounds

not once

not twice

nor the nth time but

a content and eternal guest in you
