Pregnancy

He’s so curious about life,
So impatient to be born,
That when she sleeps, he leaves
The tight quarters of her womb.

He sneaks out her open mouth,
Rappels out a window,
And waddles all the way to a pub.
Much later, he crawls home,

Stealthily reconnecting himself
To the placenta. As always,
He returns to her a bit buzzed
As he resumes the fetal position.
