|Autumn Sky Poetry . . . Number 6 . . .|
I pray for my two sons, send angels down to guide them.
awake, 2 am: I worry the high fever
unborn I will never know:
he was fear, I didn’t know it
another, I was 27, sibling for my oldest
I woke, my head bobbing uncontrollably,
a third, when I was 32,
awake, 3 am: I remember when my
a cold sweat constricts my silence,
