So maybe a tiny bit
Drunk on genealogy
I think you might like to know
I have your hands
I thought them manly
Until I caught them in a photo
Now they are just yours
I have your face
Less blue eyed
I won’t pretend to resemble my resplendent mother in her
Pigmented and obviousness
Defining olive
I’m just a white girl with Indian eyes
But you once
Held me
Can’t deny that you knew me
At least briefly
Four pounds
And 4 weeks early
I’m still anxious

Very nice and compact. A lot said in a short sentence.
