Peach

Updated: Jan 12, 2021

This poem was written in 2009 after the birth of my first child.


You gave me a peach.

Afterwards

After all that agony

All those hours on the rack.

You gave me a peach.

While they washed her

I ate it.

And I knew

With a certainty

That had just woken up

blinking

eyelashes curled inwards

I knew

That it is for this -

Life.

It is for this peach

That you gave me.
