I actually fell
wearing the baby
a puffy green bruise
on my knee, the baby
doesn't mind, smiles
the bruise gives me
a fever and I think
of new shoes

I dream of new pants
listless, molasses
aversed to work
a hot slog through
a denim dream, a loop
cargo pockets
tight on my ass
falling perfectly
at my new?

Dream of holding a baby at the bar where everyone worked- Jake, Khae, was family style. The baby bundle in all black, it was worrisome. I considered getting a job.
