Breech Truth


I think I began to show

sometime into the new year?

I wanted to be unconscious of bearing

           [conception was decades back]

                                                I felt ugly

                                     The vain carrier

I tried to cover it with thick layers

saying the weight was leftover

Over time it calcified

with dull lithing kicks

being the only real record of its dim gestation

Then with the summer

there was something in being warmed naked

and I felt it find it's anterior gate

opening the chance to slip through

I shouldered with love

and we pushed free this still truth

                   Then from the enveloped release

                   I glanced down

and I watched the fleeing tidal breech

                relentlessly floor it's mother
