"In the year 1984..." Poem by Jeff Gangwer


In the year 1984,
In the month of September,
On the fourth Sunday of the month—
And after the agony of thirty-eight hours of labor—
Nancy pushed her only son into mortality

He was blue from a lack of oxygen and a nurse put a hat on his head

'It was worth it, ' she said
