Renovating The Womb - Poem by Jeffrey McDaniel

Dear Mom, thanks for giving birth to me
and not having an abortion.2% of my time
on Earth has been spent inside your body-
more than all my girlfriends combined.

I enjoyed my time in the uterus, reading
what the previous fetuses had written
on your walls. That's how I learned
to spell. That's how I came out speaking.

    I have to say, I really liked that. It reminded me of something a friend of mine once said. (Report) Reply
