Speed Demons

In our frantic dash 
through life, 
we’ve devised

microwave ovens,
self-checkout lanes,
next day delivery

blazing gigahertz.

Thank God for

slow summer days
that entice
sweet corn

seven feet toward heaven,

lingering kisses in the night,


the nine loving months 
mother and child are one.
