Honest Word

My child
is not
the “best thing
I have ever done”
she
is
not
finished
nor am I
and to declare that as fact
is a sappy fairytale
an empty delusion
at best
And
a reduction of me
and my highest possible form
of usefulness
to
sex object
uterus
vagina
at worst
I will not do that
To either of us
