Kirsty Logan’s “My Lady’s Child”

10 Sep

From Kirsty Logan’s poem “My Lady’s Child”:

Bodies pressed, her swell of child
fits like a socket into the cup
of my hip-bones.

Read the rest in the current issue of Foundling Review.

    Man. That’s fantastic. I’m going to send this to a couple of pals of mine that are currently expecting.

    (Note: Foundling, overall, is a pretty slick looking site, but then they use the Papyrus for their titles, and I just cringe…)

    I read this as I rocked my one month old in my arms. Needless to say, I cried.
