fireborn (20170211)

the tip of an index
smooth it with your finger
make the seam disappear
make the seeming disappear

this struggling, squirming babe
birthed in this moment
how long did it wait in a belly
or did it spring
like a migraine
from your head

hide the evidence of your
fingerprints
and cast it in the fire
