From Issue 16: Giving Birth at the End of the World

Meghan Joyce Tozer

The most mundane of all things
was the birthing of new small things like ourselves.
Before the fall, things like this happened every day.

The world did not need new things
to unravel and undo things even further.
Yet we grew things in our bodies anyway.

We knew what we were doing.
There is nothing more to say.
