13 Days of Winter Break - Day 9

Yet another mother and child from Mary Kirkwood, we will have a throwback to our iambic pentameter sonnet and amniotic fluid haiku for this poem about pregnancy and iambic pentameter. 

"no STRESS, no STRESS, no STRESS
The contractions come
Separated by the minutest minutes five. 

no STRESS, no STRESS, no STRESS
Time comes undone
Prompted by every echoing rhythm.

no STRESS, no STRESS, no STRESS
It has begun
The crown of inherited infancy settled.

no STRESS, no STRESS, no STRESS
Five iambs redone
Replaced by two impactful infant feet."

(Poem by Spec Staff)
