that woman

when we pulled up to the hospital
a woman was being wheeled out
carrying her baby,
her baby wrapped in a pink blanket

i knew i would not be carrying my baby out of the hospital
even though i had a pink blanket
i knew she dead,
i could feel her lifeless inside my body

that woman was carrying what i never would
and she didn’t know it

and that woman was the beginning of my entire separation
from the world
