A white bird visits

with needle-sharp beak.

 

“Nothing is for free,”

says the midwife.

 

“The child is the father of the man.”

The child is the maker of a mother.

 

The cord snaps,

red seas part,

an angel cries.

 

A bird with feather bones

delivers a song,

clips mothers wings:

ties her to the labor of a lifetime.
