Gloss, 1

An experiment in form thanks to Cervantes

My “baby” — now age 14 | 35mm kodak film | Photo by author

The Child is father of the Man
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.

From her I’ve learned more than I knew
of love, and on what ground my heart needs stand,
this child, Mother of the Woman.
