She comes through the door
hiding something
I could see a little patch
something small and cylindrical like a thermometer,
something white
She sat in her seat
Her eyes
I noticed them
Red and puffy like

Her face worried

Just found out
She raised her finger
and placed them on her lips
Her hands became
prayer hands
pleading for me
to forget and
keep quiet
I stare at her belly
and nod...
