Actually, there's no 
such thing as 
Justice in a poem; 

and not so much 
the chiseled beauty 
of Truth 

as a homely fiction 
you come to love 
and trust.

Nucleus meets nucleus—
the two of you 
make life;

word by word, 
you give birth 
to yourself.

After, both 
parents stand 
silent behind, 

they must hope
for the best.
