Miracle by Brit Graham

For Rowan

A star unfurls in a womb,
blowing bubbly in embryonic fluid,
chipping bits of maker,
by piece.

You fell, a little
at a time. Taking care
to settle like silt
in the bottom of a
bracken stream.
Nestling seed, finding
just the sort of hole
to bury yourself in.

Stealing bits of genetic code
and stardust, expounding a
freckled and blue nebulae
until all that we’re left with
is you.
