"You have been so good.
You have been so brave,
so strong" she says, gently,
as she does every morning.

As if this is a new thing she can see.
As if it is a new project.
As if the baby has not already been
sitting there for hundreds of mornings
watching their life pass by.

She smiles,
she feeds,
she changes,
she says,
"You have been so good".

The baby knows this
before the words are said,
already drowsy with being old enough,
already drowsy with being fed,
already drowsy with being clean.

A baby, you were told.

While you were growing
you saw things others could not.
You saw the way light spotted
across your named hourglass.
You saw the way all matter
moved within and above you.

Light took a breath and became aware.
