don’t look at me

while my eyes will be avoiding their bellies
their bellies will be avoiding my eyes
I am the waking, walking version
of a nightmare they try to crush
(that all moms-to-be try to crush)
so look at me

but dear god don’t look at me
from one mom to another
i beg them
just stay outside my perimeter.
