Jaded

A poem of mine was published last year in the University of Kentucky’s Shale Literary Journal and I thought I would share it. (abridged)

Jaded- inspired by conversations over the years.

They say it will be beautiful

hearing the pitter-patter of tiny feet,

watching the pendulum swing of carefree drool

and praying to God for 18 years of my life to be more than a ritual.

 

They say it will be miraculous

pushing a watermelon out of a finger hut.

 

They tell me I will change my mind,

but that’s only going to happen if

the infant speaks English

straight out of the womb.
