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
