you will be manning the
portal of birth
what an honor

one of the high points of my life was
catching my son
at the bottom of the chute
watching him turn from
blue to pink in my hands
and cutting the cord.

when they are born
look them in the eyes
(yes they open them)
and I promise you
poems will be born as well
