If I had found today that

I was pregnant

I wondered who it was I would tell

First

Would I wait for tomorrow

Could I? To tell you…

Amongst pages of Adrien Rich simply

pass the time until

then

I found out today … I have

spaces

waiting for you to fill

Pages of desert landscape

Amongst cornbread baking and the smells of coffee

I dream of a single Eagle feather in my hand and

Ask you for directions to an ancient sea

Simply invite tomorrow

So you

can tell me what it is

Today

That you found
