Mixed Emotions

Rosalie Calabrese

Newly graduated from the Red Cross

diaper-folding class,

Lamaze the buzzword,

I opt for Sodium Pentothal

and a good sleep,

leaving my mother to count toes,

check weight, hold your first bottle,

make sure the scrotum's intact.

A scrawny 22 inches,

you know better than to cry

when she hands you over,

cleverly binding me with lashes

already long as your father's,

eyes the color of an Italian plum.
