Our Mothers Say Baby –

- like we could step outside and pluck one from the sky. It was different at 17 pregnancy test propped on the toilet paper waiting in a mall bathroom with that boyfriend outside shaking like a rabbit who said I will kill myself.

And now we roll our eyes past playgrounds and scoff at our mothers and say over drinks there are too many people in this God Damn world god damn it. And I scream no no no into the dark when your hand stops to rest over my belly
