About birth. A play on the beating of a heart and the name of the father, Tom.
... tom-tom-tom ...

with anticipation, joy and the drumbeat of the heart

... tom-tom-tom ...
the beating of a tiny heart
in a warm darkened place
of translucent light
and muffled sounds.

a sound to dance to,
a name to kick to.

Tom. Tom. Tom
must wait for
... tom-tom-tom ...
the beat of a tiny heart
... tom-tom-tom ...
to be born.
