Childless Innocence

March 20, 2018

I want to build my family

by design, not by accident

so I fear pleasure


I could be a Hutterite

and double my population

over six times


in a hundred years

I could be stable enough

to support my unborn


children are terrifying

to think about raising

when I can’t lift myself


from my nothingness

my fear crawls out

like a baby slipping


on the hardwood floor

my tears leave a stain

until they fade away


my fear reaches up to me
