While they are returning destroyed
we are writing small poems
or making love.
We don't believe that
they enjoy that.

The wounded parents travel
and we
unwanted babies from suitcases
on the hospital doorstep
write poetry.

Dear quadroplegics,
premies and second chances
your cauldrons are boiling over
of creativity.
