Poetry of a Hobo Mama

Enter now on the giveaway post! Giveaway ends April 30 and is open worldwide.

Here's a bonus poem, not included in the book, written while I was pregnant with Alrik:

This is the only day in the world
that I am 35 weeks and 35 years,
that my boy speaks in a high voice
and pronounces his Ls like Ys,
and my husband has shaved his head
and is wearing a tie
for the first time in a year.

This is the only day in the world
that we are a family of three
and my belly sticks out before me
and makes me glad to see
the bright red points of scars,
the protrusion of my navel,

like the center, a rose,
a point of focus,
present here, now, yes.
