Sweet Life

by Camilla Jean Welsch

The babe lies
with wet dark hairs
tousled in many directions,
and hangs his wrinkled digits
over his mother’s ample arm,
because she is soft from his letting,
and must be a pillow for some time yet,
from which he blinks and peers
and draws his sweet life’s sustenance.
