Mourning come to light / bears in badges, teddies in helmets / their voices pitched high
Fertility

         for Luke

Crampy and depressed
the motions of hope beyond hope
a child's blue kimono

A lightness of being
smoke in the air, smog to choke
the shuffle between toilet and bed

Mourning come to light
bears in badges, teddies in helmets
their voices pitched high

Harvest of sperm
the soft fold and blend with eggs
a child in a small blue kimono

note: From the talk given by Shelley Kirilenko who wrote, The Blue Kimono about infertility. How on the second try in vitro fertilization worked. I got a signed copy and had her son Luke, who turned 6 *Heart* on Thursday, August 21st, 2008 to sign it too.
