predictable baby

by Michele Schottelkorb




the ash falls

the moon rises

the stain sets

the trouble brews

the baby cries

the rain cascades

the cloud conjures

the smile fades

the rope drops

the pendulum swings

the baby laughs

the angel prays

the hole empties

the lie multiplies

the truth hides

the rose dies

the banshee screams

the baby sleeps

the heart breaks

the soul falters

the mind fails

the body crumbles

the star blinks

the sun burns

the stone cracks

but the baby

the baby

does not change…
