5 Weeks by Brittney Corrigan

This is the week the heart starts
beating. Little bird, little lizard,

little princess pea. Small round
stairway of spine. Small cleft

body. Small ache in my belly.
Everything moves over–

my insides rearrange. The heart
starts beating. My insides rearrange.

  1. Oh my goodness, I love this poem! I feel like I've read it before, but the author name doesn't ring a bell. Beautiful. Love the new site design, too!
