“and this day it was” a motion like – emotion like

Slow- slowly – only the movements all felt



Natural – actual time capsules bursting like

Ripe cocoons

This waiting room

For soon to be fathers

Became a spaceship – a makeshift palace

Name changed to Alex – my wonder landed

Then bounced back to a higher profile

Teeth became nail files

Hoping things would lay flat – like Iron steam

Dream this wasn’t

Couldn’t be

Guess who was called up next?

This — this sensation that caused

Tear drop and jack-o-lantern grin

Can’t be compared to any other scene

Watching a smaller version

Of you

Kicking and screaming

Already observing though eyes

Can’t fully function yet

Yet – I knew our eyes connected

And our thoughts connected

Especially from behind glass
