Pink Bundle with Price Tag
Arms to hold her first baby, folded on her crossed legs.
Suppressed in her expression, wrapped was her excitement.
I remembered Aunt on the phone telling,
“we are going to have a baby” while laughing at her husband.
A young school girl wanted to adopt her unborn baby.
Aunt said, “she would be beautiful like you, lady.”
The gossip; baby’s father was white and the mother was black.
The baby could own loose locks on a melted caramel tan.
My aunt had fought and climbed trees, just like a man
Not to happen, she would bear children like a woman
