the day we heard the News
September 13, 2018

kissed before you’ve even been born

by your cousin Ava
in our kitchen
as we look on in delight

your father moves to stand beside your mother
he puts one arm around her shoulders
the other he cups protectively in front of her, and you

your parents are beaming
your mother’s moving lightly
“Feeling fine, just tired.”
