Twin Poems


Sweat mixed
With pain
Time of first
Labor

Push!
Push!
Breathe now!
Breathe!
Push
Again!
Push again!
Here it is
the first of the twin's;
It is a male
Poem.
Breathe now!
Take one more
Breath
Push now!
Push!
Push!
Push again!
I can see the head.
Breathe!
Breathe again
And push!
The second twin is
Coming out.
Push!
Push!
Do not stop!
Push!
Here it is!
The second twin baby;
It is a
A female poem.

What names
I am going to
Choose for them?
This pregnancy
Is not the fruit
Of a romantic
Love;
It comes
With a big pain
And two
Healthy
Heavy
Twin poems.
