Canto CXXI

You ask me if I felt it. Yes, I did.
A gentle tap that may as well have been
an earthquake or a exploding grenade—

the shock of it felt through my every bone,
quickened the heart to rush blood to the brain,
transformed this rented flat into a home,

my palm across your belly’s drum-taut skin.

    “she” has been a real person from the moment of her conception. I can feel that in your writing.
