Sun Vs. Son

by Brian Fuchs

Falling rays prove merciless;
the hospital all robed in pink fills with babies,
exhausted mothers
from rising heat.
colored like the sun and screaming,
comfort taken too hastily.
The minty green dressed men and women
put the baby in a box, shine lights,
drain the sun from his skin.
Rejoicing, the sun burns more fiercely.
The world sighs.



Author's Note: A take on the day I was born.
