To My Daughter, Who Will Not Be Born

Feeling inspired.

I admire your innocence
I was like you
once upon a time
An unforgiving galaxy
Noli me tangere
Allow me to apologize

Vanguard of an unwritten tale
Cradling your sweet face
Dense fog off the Bay
Perhaps I put too much faith

In you, in me
The bittersweet reality
Is the legacy I leave
To flow through your veins
Marching off a cliff
Like silly little lemmings

I fear the world
which you will be borne
To carry my scars
Worn like medals
On dress whites
Duck pants
Jaunty cap

A chance relinquished
One in a million
Unexperienced memories
A single shard of regret

That must make you
The last one inflicted
Within my glacial heart.
