WHISPERING

 

I lie next to the baby as she

 concedes to sleep.  Cup

 

my hand over her ear, pat

the space between her

 

shoulder blades, her breaths

the steady prompts

 

of a secret.  I wanted

this, I say to her as she falls

 

away.  Her limbs heavy, lips

still, whispering

 

my luck.
