St. Juliana (patron of childbirth and sickness)

press your lips to their deep blue

wounds. suck out the sweet

honey of something sick

hot and thick under the skin.

remember the soft sound

it makes as it breaks through.

fall into a swoon. watch

the swell of growing bellies

like full moons rising. this

world is an accidental birth.

what have we named it?

& where did it get those

green eyes?
