Father says

by Zehra Cirak

Father says

On Father´s  Day is Mother´s  Night

On Mother´s  Day is flower

round and lovely and light

the baby does not yet know

what celebratet there

Most important at the first outing

the breast awaits

round and lovely and heavy

filled with milk

enough to sleepallfilledup

Mother says flying is lovely

and Father hangs in danger

On Father´s  Night is Mother´s Day

and on Father´s  Day is Ascension Day

dark clouds

drawn into the baby´s  eyes.
