Tuesday poem #57 : Rachel Moritz : The shape of its body, the movement and the waveform
I left her in the kitchen, with a woman older than myself.
‘She’ll make a better mother,’
I knew such weight wasn’t finite.
The car purred away on gravel, and where she remained audible,
wind might break these trees.
Dense emporium. Gap, its not yet—
