Newborn

You were pushed out

You were shocked out

The dry lightness surrounding

Your private thoughts.


You were clouded by

The vague memory of

Humanity in your DNA.


You are the first capitalised 

Breath before language

Was known, you are


Relatively new yet you

Are closer to the truths

Than Death will ever see.


You are almost blind,

Deaf and dumb and yet

In you hums a beat that’s


In sync with mum’s, that hearts

Everything with the precarious 

Infinity of seeds.
