The light of a new mother’s moonlight
This rite of passage stimulates umbilical cords
there is in this, the defining of the ego;
not something the mother dreamed of
transmutes into dark steps of danger:
your freedom comes at a high price.
mother has long forgotten.
your cheeky baby-snatchers
in return for muted contentment.
