The Annunciation - Poem by Patti Masterman

Does the body know it's just become pregnant?
Is there a shudder in the loins to confirm
That this time conception actually occurred,
And was this the most memorable night of life-
Or scarcely remembered, in drunken haze?

Well, what should one expect from beginnings
That were so randomized, to start with?
Babies must be faster in this modern age,
To avoid the abortionist's hooks.
