as it its written…

this
unborn child
was
the promised one
but now
its
heartbeat is labored
its
movements erratic
inside
the womb
blood is pooling
as if
there’s hemorrhaging
much of its body
shows malformations
clefts
deep divisions
between parts
of
the body
survival
will require
heroic efforts
but
perhaps
we will yet
see
an american
