Devils, or angels, singing in empty rooms.
Walk along the hallway and feel the wind,
warm and hard,
blowing through an open window.
It is summer time, and late, the sun has set.
lawyers sing, but think of money and flesh,
the accused stays silent, assured of his success.
Break the seal and read the letter; it will reveal
if you are having a boy or girl.
Does he have long legs?
Is she looking strong?
Look at her arms move!
A line of pregnant women look up as you enter.
One girl, no older than sixteen, begs her mother to let her come home.
Speak on the telephone to a stranger
and then one day meet.
What a disappointment and what sadness when you meet.
