thank you

as I walk the streets of this city

at 37° Celcius and at this point

quite pregnant,

I just wanted to thank

these limbs and bones and skins

for having been just so

eagerly transforming,

welcoming every change

throughout the last nine months.

let’s walk the final mile

and stay strong

and rest when need be

and take cold showers

and sleep when it’s time

and stretch when it’s time

and make this count

for the little one,

for the family.
