Poems

Grownup Laughing

I look around
I see babes crawling
Are babes
Walking around.

I cry it out from a full belly;
You scream it at me in front of the space-heater
With your glowing toy in hand:

M-I-L-L-I-O-N-S like this!

We’ve grown up into this from under painless smiles,
And it’s all funny, now
Even if there’s no sleep
Dreaming warmth wide awake
While this loveless January wind
Rocks our cradle,
Dear.

Smile.
