FINALLY BENJAMIN

I feel niggles of cramps, sitting in the green recliner, tired after shopping & think, could this be it? No, itís two weeks early. But all night those keep-on-coming-back clenchings & command my body, BEHAVE, like you hold your breath to get rid of hiccups & ignore them, go to church anyway & to the Pantry but Iím not hungry & canít wait for home to collapse on couch exhausted from fighting & this canít be it, can it? & watch the second hand on kitchen clock Ė five minutes Ė what
should I do? & call Mel and Jan & sit on the floor while Sonia plays plasticine & another one possesses my body...Hurry Ernie!
Four minutes! & Ernie at last & at Jan and Melís a trickle & gush!
Borrow beach towel & drift in and out & parking lot lights &
breathe, blow, breathe, blow & step, breathe, step, blow
& breathe, blow & oh! oh! & breathe, blow &
face in mine ďSlow down. Look at meĒ
& oh! oh! let go &
doctorís here
& slip
Waa!
Itís a boy!
& itís over Ė thatís all there is?
& heís warm, lively, skin to skin & they put a stocking toque on him
& we laugh, then they roll him away & the nine months is over & I canít stop smiling
& my bodyís mine again & I canít stop smiling & finally Benjamin & I canít stop smiling.

It was interesting the way you chose to link this all together with the and's, as all the events really blurred into one bigger event. Well done.
