December Whirl

~~ 1 ~~
 
birth of her firstborn
on this silent, holy night—
the pale young mother
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
a young mother’s sigh
consolation of cattle
two roosters chime in
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
the new arrival
a stray dog from the village
sniffing at the child
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
Laughing villagers,
oblivious to the child,
stumble to their homes.
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
(alone)
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
(scar)
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
(ingest)
