Putting a Baby to Sleep (ROUGH draft)

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Years have gone by
and I've put babies to sleep many hundreds of times.
young boys,
adorable autistic girls with big curly hair and wild eyes.

Mostly infants,
with their downy hair,
their primordial noises,
and the soft spot between the primal
and the cerebral.

Years have gone by,
one laid down
beside the last.
Growth happens;
me, wiser,
them, milestones
of development.

And in this 25th year,
every time I lay an infant down,
I wish he were my own.
