THE SECOND BABY My heart's a balloon
not a paper bag.
But I didn't know that
until you came.
It was brim with love before . . .
no room to include another.
Not without tearing apart.
That's what I thought.
But there was no rending
with expansive heave
when I first held you.
My heart
was simply bigger.
And it will grow
again.
