The Sign

November 12, 2008
By Hannah Anderson, Lincoln, NE

She stands there quietly
A simple smile on her face
She only sees
Hands on her belly, quietly
She feels and smiles
Boy? I tip my invisible hat
Girl? I brush my jaw with my fist
She tips her hat to me
Bwoy she says
She’s confident and strong
When? I mouth
My fingers rotating, imitating
Birth? I arch an invisible bump
Syooown she waves her hand up and down
The grin growing ear to ear
She cradles her arms and smiles
