Jordan

By Stephanie Sharp

blood and water
oh God, no!
blood and water
not this!
the curse in my womb
preying in darkness
blood and water
the curse visible
weep for the child that is no more

no time to speak
when will you hear my voice?
I love you.
no time to touch
your body never clothed in skin
no toes to count
nothing to receive my kisses
nothing to fill my arms
only blood and water
the curse visible
Eve’s legacy in her daughter

blood and water
oh God, no!
blood and water
not this!
my curse on the cross
praying in darkness
blood and water
the curse damned
rejoice for the wounded who are remembered

eternity
time to speak
hear my voice
I love you.
time to touch
soft skin against mine
toes to count
feel my lips on your cheek
your weight in my arms
by Blood and Water
the curse damned
Eve’s redemption in her daughter
