PoemCity'12 Poem Displayed at Kellogg-Hubbard Library

"The Last Pregnancy" at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library for PoemCity'12

The Last Pregnancy

Couldn't name it.
Nothing more than molecules,
Clustered, on the screen.
It couldn't be anything more.
Still, the tenderness came,
Wanted or not,
And a particular craving
Immediate and intense.
After a time, it all quickly faded:
The tenderness.
The craving.
The Baby.
