Special Knowledge

Thacia 9 months

What does a baby know
emerging from utero
mysteries of the universe
flecking self-possessed
interior-focused gaze?

what does a baby know
chuckling in sleep about
the pleasures of amniotic
fluid and cosmic jokes
shared between angels?

she has much to forget
of the fabric of time and
composition of peace to learn
everyday marvels like spoon
and arithmetic.
