Moses' sister

by Julie Adams

bag found
in the river
in Brazil

in the bag
in Brazil
a baby

wailing
like a cat
in a bag

in the river
a baby, despite
all despair
was living

in a bag
breathing
in a bag
screaming
in a bag

in Brazil
down the river
a baby found

they say
she's Moses' sister

Author's Note: this poem came in dreams, in reaction, involuntary, but it too just needed to breathe...
