somebody else’s baby :: mary jo salter

by on October 28, 2014

From now on they always are, for years now
they always have been, but from now on you know
they are, they always will be,

from now on when they cry and you say
wryly to their mother, better you than me,
you’d better mean it, you’d better

hand over what you can’t have, and gracefully.
