L C Vieira

(Lisbon, Portugal)

Six Centimetres


I breathe
as you breathe
and feel as you feel
so when the little one's head

emerges

I know as you know
that no one else
and nothing else matters
as much
in
this
single
moment
in an eternity
of no time left
to think about anything but
the

Push
and
Pull

of pain
and
joy

of a perfect Plan

permitted.

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
