59–Mother Loss

2:32 A.M. i wake remembering

how in a tent at Rocky Mountain

National Park you told me your secret

how you conceived and bore a son

at 18 and then gave him up for adoption

how we invent stories that make it all right

virgin birth and yet when you lost your

youngest boy years later and i hardly knew

you anymore, i wondered if your need to find

your first born took you to him
