' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' Kid About It(Tankas)

WITH CHILD

She was still just a
kid...having a kid. A child
carrying a child.
And next year...pregnant again
breeding her own misery.

*******

BEARING IT

Baby held over
her left shoulder...asleep now.
Trail of puke down back
belly full-blown with next one
bruise badly hidden with make up.
