What Babies Want
The other Side of the Glass
 Being Born is Important
Being born is important
You who have stood at the bedposts
and seen a mother on her high harvest day,
the day of the most golden of harvest moons
for her
You who have seen the new wet child
Dried behind the ears,
 Swaddled in soft fresh garments,
pursing its lips and seeing a groping mouth
toward nipples where the white milk is ready
You who have seen this love's payday
of wild toiling and sweet agonizing.
You know being born is important
You know that nothing else was ever so
important to you.
You understand that the payday of love is so
so involved, so traced with the circles of the
So cunning with the secrets of the salts of
the blood,
It must be older than the moon, older than
the salt.
