you eat me up
with your power
you devour

I am your prey
femme fatale
you pinned me down
I cannot flee


Midwife crisis

she saw his eyes
blinking in her womb
and said:
please come out,
no strings attached
you tiny sprout

but Feetus whispered:
I’ll stay put
and linger
for a while
before I shall embark
on this lengthy earthly trial
