4pm go for a drive

The last time with just two

an intimacy in the quiet

a private moment for no one else

6pm go see a film “Along Came Polly.”

Contractions soon come on

Everybody on tenterhooks, the wait has been long

Not just 9 months, all the pain that went before


Beautiful, eyes open, perfect miraculous silence

Water signifying life

The wait is over

Two becomes three
