Childwind
by Elizabeth Slaughter-Ek

Her hand is cupped to her cheek
She's finally asleep
My back cramps against the too small headboard
And I ease my way upright
Stretching

Standing there, I could stand there
Forever my eyes holding her
She's never still
Except when she's sleeping
God knows she doesn't need much
A few hours charge her buzzing body
Send her zooming into the stratosphere
A whirling, smiling childwind

I thought I didn't want kids
My eyes betray me
She's mine I'm hers
What if I'd never seen her
Stomping grinning blur?
Her hand cupped to her cheek

I close the door and leave her sleeping
 happy
mood: happy
music: none. just me.
