Poetry #145
(published July 31, 2003)
Little Kirsch Face
by Marcy Jarvis

blueberried eyes
watermelon mouth
a cluster of currants upon your breast

I carry you out
upon the sandbar
seat you in this shallow pool of a nest

another child
built up these walls
dip your forehead forward into the cool

come up smiling
relieved by water
rivulets running trickling down around

over mistakes a
doctor's made again
at your expense because I caved again
