5 poems over this Easter w/end

Easter (i)

Thursday 

***

He looks with round face and clear 

Dark eyes, smiling with a gummy grin

 

He rubs his soft cheeks against mine

And chuckles, his baby breath

A warm breeze in passing

 

He dribbles down his chin 

Reaching imperfectly 

With perfect hands

For what he cannot grasp

 

Kicks his legs

With tomato-soft knees

And baby-burps a sour

Splurge on my shoulder

 

Warm and reassuring 

I walk with him in my arms,

Whispering the 'Shema'

In his lettuce-like ear

 

'Hear O Israel

The Lord your God

Is One'

 

Oh Judas,

You are such

A lovely baby.
