Eve and baby 1

she looks down
and her belly is getting smaller
her breasts move forward
and baby says

hello

she hopes she can hear
leaning against
the wall

her belly button begins
to wiggle
she feels like half
an egg stretching
out
muscles on a pale landscape
and baby says

i’m sleeping

she hopes child
can feel her
beat

she looks down at
her legs
earth revolves around her
body now
the moon is held
by adam
and at night he sings
while she looks for the
ocean

baby yawns and turns

she hopes child
is swimming for
shoreline……
