“Song for Baby-O, Unborn” by Diane di Prima

Song for Baby-O, Unborn

when you break thru
you’ll find
a poet here
not quite what one would choose.

I won’t promise
you’ll never go hungry
or that you won’t be sad
on this gutted
breaking
globe

but I can show you
baby
enough to love
to break your heart
forever

.

Diane di Prima, 1934-2020
