Benjamin SleepingWendy Wisner
Long ago, his body slid out of mine. Now he sleeps in fetal pose, fists joined in prayer. Long ago, but it was yesterday. No, a winter has passed. Two. My mother’s turning sixty. My boy calls me mama. Soon his body will fill the doorway, long arms dripping roses, and I will walk into the dark looking for my mother.
