Shedding

<Back to the Issue

The ewe delivers afterbirth and

licks her lambs who wobble

for colostrum

I bleed with the moon

tucked into a hay bale

the moon is tucked

behind a winter hailstorm

mama sticks her head out

for a scratch

behind the ears

we are two animals

both shedding

what we can not hold

so we hold each other

here

where the too muchness

is not a choice

but an obligation

where I cry to the lambs

and we all make it

to spring
