Between the hospital and here in through the looking glass.

in the hospital i hold her swaddled against me
and feel the shape of her knee beneath the blanket
and remember how that knee undulated inside me
now i lay in my bed
home, but without her
it feels like i’m missing a limb
.

She’s here! And hopefully out of the NICU by tomorrow.
