Text of poem

Have I ever told you

            that I loved you           

            from the moment

            I saw the crown

            of your little baby head?

We don’t share memories

            in our family anymore.

(But, then, did we ever?)


This is how it was.

You were born on a Monday,

            brought home on a Saturday.

            —liquid bullets of rain

            sprayed the sidewalk

            all day.

The welcoming party

            of few

Sat in a borrowed car

            listening to the drear,

            the father

            isolated in an envelope

            of illness and fear,

            the others

            waiting for something

            to mend them again.

The back door opened

            and you were handed in,

            protected solicitously

            from your too-new world.

Arms argued over

            who would get you first.

When it was my turn

            I buried my nose in your milky smell

            and kissed your downy head.

It was the first time

            I’d ever known

            “love at first sight.”

The car ferried them home

            in the onslaught of rain,

            the father cast adrift

            and heading to the whirlpool

that would soon

            pull him down.

And though his legacy           

to this baby

            would be scant

            —little joy

            —unspoken words

            —unshared events

He folded this baby

            into his heart to take with him

            on the journey he still faced

            —this son

            whose birth he’d overshadowed

            —this child whose portrait

            was his mirror.

Have I ever told you

            that I loved you

            from the moment

            I saw the crown

of your little baby head?
