No regrets

Lo! At the twinkling of my birth

just mere moments after leaving the birth canal

& still covered in blood & amniotic fluid

My doctor

(Who was lifting me up to show to my mother)

-dropped me-

I plummeted toward the earth

surely doomed

when at the last possible second

just a hair’s breadth away from eternal damnation & Hellfire

the attending Doula

-caught me-

My whole life passed before my eyes

but I remember thinking

if I had to do it all over again

I wouldn’t change

a

thing
