How much did I live in the body
and how much in the mind?

Because there was so much
I didn't know, I wanted to be
a good student.

And when I became a mother,
I learned what it was to feel
divested of a sense
of invincibility, though I knew
I never really had it.

I have always been
a light sleeper since then.
